Re: Wallas Diesel Heaters

Wallas seems to have a good rep. If you have LP on your boat what's the problem? Unless there are total idiots out there using LP (propane) doing really dumb stuff and not using prescribed and well proven methods for LP installs; it's safe! Now if you have a gasoline engine aboard I'd think of not having LP.

I've been around gas and oil fired equipment all my life. Marine units though smaller and unique are not all that different then larger units except other then the use of stainless steel and cast iron.

Re: Wallas Diesel Heaters

Dear Scup,

I have no first-hand experience with these units but, when looking some years ago at c-Dorys (I know, I know), read a lot of mixed to quite negative reports on the C-Brats site (The C-Brats :: Home) about the counter top models. What I remember is that you had to use special fuels (lamp oil or the like), could NOT repair them in the field, and had to have a fair bit of electrical current to start up and perhaps to run. I'd look closely before making the jump.

I'd love to hear back what you find out.

Wallas Diesel Heaters

Has anybody tried the Wallas stove top, oven, heater combo. I'm still working on getting my hands on a 81 PSC 37. There is no heater in it currently and the stove is 30 yrs old. I figured that I could kill four birds with one stone.

First I would get a new oven.
Second I would get a heater.
Third I'd get propane off the boat.
Fourth I'd free up the Lazarette locker for storing jerrycans or fenders. Maybe the Life Raft.

My concerns are if it would actually get heat up to the head and forepeak. I've heard that they produce no smell at all. Any input would be greatly appreciated. They are pricey and if it didn't work that would be a real bummer.

thanks, -Scup
