No Dickinson on a 37?
After making a reasonable case for why I should go with the pot burner style, it looks like it just won't fit on the 37. The Dickinson Newport heater requires 48" of flue run to work as well as 48" from the top of the heater to the cabin ceiling, which puts the heater in the settee.
I drew up a little sketch showing the best arrangement, which won't work from a heater performance perspective, unfortunately I can't post a PDF or anything else reasonable.
What I don't know is what the flue run requirements are for the Refleks unit; do any of you that have them installed know? I could not find any technical information on the web.
Also, any Pac Sea owners out there with experience in locating the heater, and what the performance is? I am reluctant to go to a large amp draw forced air furnace, like Wallas, but looks like that may be the only functional option.
