Re: Canadian sailing + heating ?

+1, 2 and 3 for Espar. Low fuel consumption, low battery drain, thermostatically controlled heat like at home...negative is equipment and installation costs. Makes a big difference after a cold foggy day in Maine to truly get warm, dry and comfortable. Be sure if you do it to lead some of the duct work into the head

Re: Canadian sailing + heating ?

In my new boat I have a Fab-all diesel heater, drip feed and very efficient use of fuel. I fabricated and installed fins on the exhaust flue and harvest the waste chimney heat.

We installed a Dickinson propane heater. It is vented outside.
