Thanks, let me know how it works out. My install is not imminent, but I'll post what I do.

If you're short on money you could just buy or build a small wood/charcoal stove.
Very simple and you could heat your water on a pot or you could make a systeme where a copper pipe goes around the stove several time so it heats your water.

This solution is cheap and simple ( just the way I like it )

Check this months issue of Good Old boat. There is an article about installing a used heater in a sailboat.

Thanks again, I'll look for GOB.
I've considered solid fuel heat, and like the idea. I think it might be simpler to build a stack for my gas oven and use that. But the wife still wants running hot water, and I do have space in the engine room, and she carries plenty of diesel.

Thumbs up Re: Heat and hot water

I installed forced air diesel furnace Planar last October in my 42 ft. motor boat. Had no problem to stay on board during a winter season. It's not crazy cold here in BC but chilly and wet. The heater worked great. At one-third the cost of the equal Webasto or Espar the furnace produces tons of heat. I can say it's a really good alternative to the existing pricey brand names.

Re: Heat and hot water

Brian be less conservative.
It doesn't take a lot to replace a glow plug. And the parts are always available from the Planar dealer in Vancouver. Also the heaters come with 2-year warranty provided by the dealer and backed-up by manufecturer.
