I’m considering using what you have.  I want defrost vents on the windshield and wonder how well heat would find it’s way into the cuddy

The nordic DT looks awesome, thanks for sharing kennneee. A bit expensive but looks like an awesome solution for a heater and stove combo.

I bought this diesel heater for my crestliner sabre. Works great,  all aluminum housing, simple control knob and cheap.

Does it work while under way?   I see it is called a “parking” diesel heater.  The price is definitely do able!

I wonder what "parking" means.  For boats that wouldn't otherwise have a heater, either because of $$$ or boat size/usage, it'd be nice to put one of these in.  If I build a Widebody, I definitely will...

There is a video on YouTube where some guy tests it.  I just can’t remember how loud.    I want to say it was 80 something

I wonder what "parking" means

I suspect the main application is for heating the cab and sleeper on a Class 8 truck when "parked"...

Works just like webasto or espar. In fact i think it was copied from espar, almost identical. Used in the same ways. Haven't had any problems underway even in a steep lake Erie chop.

as i start to get furniture in order for the build I find my self hitting my head against the wall.  I stared at all the lovely images of alcohol stoves for sale for a year now.  Along with others fuel types too.  It wasn't until the past couple days I learned that no alcohol stove really exists new, for sale.  I did lose an action on Ebay for a new in the box origo 3000 which I really wanted.
  The Wallas is just Sooo expensive.  I have read so many stories about Scan Marine crappy service and great expense folks have had to shell out for these units.  Unfortunately there just inst much of a choice I guess.  On another note the porta potty I want is also unobtanium.
