This has been an interesting thread, much information has been shared. Not to hyjack this thread, but wondering what size boat you are talking about heating here. I have a Cat 27 and cannot imagine having the room to add a heater.

This is one example that will fit almost any boat and is an excellent product.

Heater

I have a 27 foot Catalina and it has a small kerosene/diesel drip heater mounted in the forward part of the cabin by the v-berth.

I did a blog post a while ago here: Sail Everett: Blakes Lavac Taylor Kerosene Heater Works great for me. In port with electric I just use an electric heater. If we're anchored out it's just the kerosene heater and snuggling.

Interesting. Rare over here, unless on a UK imported boat. Must have been expensive for the original purchaser.

I sail out of Everett, WA. Just North is British Columbia which may have been where the heater came from. My sail inventory was made in Canada.

I'm in Victoria, originally from Vancouver. Years ago there were a few stores that imported UK gear in small quantities. I've seen the Taylor's stoves and the Lavac heads which have good US & Canada distribution - I have one. But I have never seen that heater locally before. Found them on this UK site
http://www.yachtparts.co.uk/shop/below-deck/heaters
but the least expensive model at today's exchange rate is about $2050.
Keep it well polished - it prices like gold.

A third alternative is Webasto’s Hydronic diesel water boiler / heater that will also heat your boat. Semi-trucks use these systems to heat their cabs. I have friend living is Seattle and he love it. It alows him to heat water and warm the boat underway without the use of his engine.

Also I have been told but never verified that some insurance companies will not insure boats with propane heaters or “on demand” water heaters. Might want to ask, just in case.
