    Default Heater for a 24' Glasply

    Picked up a project labor day weekend,one thing led to another and not the boat is pretty well stripped out. Plenty to do, been thinking about a new layout for the interior and want to make sure I have a spot for a heater.


    Wondering what type of heater to get, I have been looking at Wallas and Espar? The boat is small so seems like a small diesel fired unit would be the ticket, what do you guys think?

    Thanks......J

    Dickinson propane heater, needs no electricity to run it so no drain on the batteries if you get stuck for awhile. Yes its vented to the outside.

    Thanks Steve, Good point about requiring power, I had written off propane because of the tank, I know I still need a tank for diesel but figured I could get a small one tucked out of the way, or even get a tank made if I had to. This descion affects what we do for the stove top as well. The boat had a Seward pressurized alcohol stove, pretty dang rusty, not sure if it works or not............more to ponder.......Hmmm

    Don't know what your going to cook on but if you had propane then you could have fuel for both heat and cooking ???

    I guess I was thinking about fixing or getting another (2) burner alcohol cooktop, I know the Dickinson is vented but wondeing if the moisture from a propane cooktop is worth considering.

    I know moisture is a constant battle, especially late season fishing or fall deer hunts, so trying to plan accordingly...................

    Anyone using Webasto heaters (hydronic) and connecting to the already in place heater core in the cabin?
    It looks like Espar makes something similar, basically a small boiler.

    Rather spendy & more complex than gas, but small................?
