Scott, on a previous 25 footer that we had, I built a little wood stove and installed in on its own companion way hatch board with the pipe exiting out the backside and then up. We burned presto log rounds in it. It barely took the chill off that little boat and it wouldn't burn but an hour at a time, but it's what we could do with the resources we had (in other words too po' to buy a real stove) It definitely looked like something like Jethro would throw together but I'm not the kind of fellow who worries too much about what other people think. Anyway, I totally get the idea of not wanting to cut a hole through the cabin top so that's the alternative that we came up with.
Omatako's solution looks good too, but I'm not sure where you would store that when not in use and I'm not sure whether it's vented to the outside or not, because air circulation is critical.
