I am looking for those that have the wallas stove in their boats and what they think about it. I have the option of installing this, or to do a three burner propane stove for about the same cost. The boat will have a Webasto 3500 furnace in it, so I will not need the wallas for heat.
The way I see it, the advantages of the Wallas is that it is safer, since there is no propane, and there is one less fuel source to keep filled, since it uses deisel instead of propane and it is safer than propane.
The disadvantages are that it is a slower heat source, and does not cool down right away. Can those that own one of these comment? How is it to cook on this unit? Is the difference similar to a gas vs. electric range in a house, or is there more of a difference? I had also heard that the wallas could be used to dry gloves, etc. Can someone explain this to me. Is there any diesel smell in the cabin with the wallas unit?
