I am looking to put heat in a new hard top aluminum boat the manufacturer has priced me a Wallas 40D ducted to the windows and cabin at just a shade under $3K. I think that is probably a fair price installed I know these units are spendy and I do not want propane but is there a less expensive alternative? The cabin is fairly small 7.5' long by about 7' wide with a queen size birth so I don't have room for a free standing model. I also live in Wa state so I don't use the heat as much as someone would in Alaska fishing in early spring or fall. I plan on using in Alaska in the summer but it gets a little chilly hear in the fall, winter and early mornings.
I have a propane Mr Buddy in my rag top but I hate it. I have a hard time keeping it lit because of the safety features and it makes the inside sweat
