Question Suggestions for Hunter 31 Heater?

I recently bought a 1985 Hunter 31 Sailboat that I hope to daysail & cruise year round here in the Pacific Northwest. I want to install a propane heater in the cabin but am miffed as to where to put it. The boat doesn't appear to have any unused space available where it can be safely and conveniently installed. Has anyone out there seen a boat like this with a heater installed?

Propane Cabin Heater

In this link, the topic of heaters is discussed. Not specifically where to mount the heater, but which heater type to use is suggested.

Thanks - I read the posts and am now reconsidering propane as a fuel source which will probably redefine possible locations for a heater.

Teaspoon,

There is an article about a fellow that installed a diesel truck heater in his Albin Ballad sloop. He bought the unit used and mounted it in the space above the quarter births where the coping rises. Hard to describe but a copy of the mag is $8. It might be good for ideas. If my boat was bigger, and if I used diesel, I'd consider doing the same.
