    Talking Nice and Warm

    Just installed this in my boat today and the cabin is nice and warm and the wife is real happy

    .Shipping was cheap also. I had the old version diesel swapped out the bottom for LP

    Having heat on those cool, damp days is a real treat. Post up some pictures of the install.

    Yup, did the exact same thing on my old 26 Tolly. The diesel wasn't as clean or convenient as the LPG. Happy and warm boating to you!

    I wouldn't call it an install on my part.The heater was installed when I bought the boat. it started as a diesel then the last owner rigged it for LPG ( How they did not blow up is beyond me.) I just took the heater off the wall and drilled out the rivets and reinstalled the LPG adapter made for the unit ($220) ran the correct hose out to the outside deck under the side rail.I ran it on high for a few hours thats all I could stand I'm installing new carpet so I wanted the cabin warm so the glue would stick. Forgot to add it does not get hot at all behind the unit just in front and on top. Going to mount a 12v fan in the corner of the cab to blow heat into the sleeping area

    Very cool. Can you run with the heater on or are these types of heaters only to be used while at rest? I suspect you will have engine heat while underway, anyway.
