I doubt your insurance company will like it.
Price out all the bits and pieces you'll need then compare the price. I have quoted two of these Propex units and every time they lost to Espar or a bulkhead heater like the Dickenson.. I believe they are also painted steel.... Also 1 gallon in ten hours means a LOT of propane consumption...A 20 pound tank, which most boats don't have, is only 4.7 gallons +/-...I would like a few opinions from everyone on this popes propane fired boat forced air furnace the price seems good at less than half the cost of a diesel unit

For a Spencer 42 I agree......so forced air is the best way to go.
Im not getting itif you are referring to the confusion concerning boats I own and live on an islander Bahama 24 the Spencer is my dads new boat I have a force ten propane unit on my boat we are needing non electric heating for the 42 right now he is heating with a forced air 110 ac and a 110 ac radiant unit the po before the kid we got the boat from removed the original heating plant for some reason not sure what that was dad is the 5th ownerYup, a Cal and and a Spencer 42 are a little different. Minor details.
Diesel forced air.
