Good info. Thanks for sharing.

My return air goes through the bulkhead, under the pullman berth, out through the back of the closet to the base of the stairway.

It is probably worth the effort to get your return air to a "low' point in the boat.

Hey Starwatch, is the heater in yet. I just had a guy come in to put a bid together. He wants to go with the "40" over the "30" just wondering if its overkill.

One of the big differences in the 40 and 30 at the time I made my decision was the 40 has a separate exhaust and combustion air pipes. The 30 is a combined co-axial pipe with the exhaust going out in the inner pipe with the combustion air flowing in around it via the larger outer pipe.

This co-axial setup means that the exhaust pipe is cooled significantly by the combustion air coming in around it. This lowers the danger of a hot pipe in the engine room and eliminates having a hot exhaust port through the hull or cabin wall. I can comfortably touch the exhaust outlet where it exits the cabin wall with the furnace on max.

The maximum length for the exhaust and combustion air pipes are quite a bit longer for the 40 than the 30. So the 40 does offer more options for mounting the furnace.

As far as heating capacity is concerned, I have been working on the inside of my boat for the past 10 days so the furnace has been on full time. I had to turn the thermostat down to about 2.5 on the dial after one day since it was just too warm in there. This is Jan/Feb in Victoria so the same weather you get. Unless you are going to run a heat pipe up to an enclosed upper helm the 30 will be plenty of heat.

I had an Espar heater D5 forced air in my 34' californian that worked great when I was in Alaska. I now have the boat in TX and have since removed the system and installed an AC system. The Espar system is for sale if you are interested. I used it for two summers in AK.

Heats in, Mappy is right. The 40 will live on low setting.

What?? No pics? Are you SURE you installed the Wallas 40?

Is it oversized for the boat? If you did it again, would you go with the Wallas 30?

Will be wrenching on the boat tomorrow and promise to take pics. Ended up installing heater in ER. Wanted it under seat in salon but was to bulky. Ran duct number one into salon above steps and the duct two through pullman berth into v berth with vents in each. I think a 30 is a little better suited for 90% of the time. The thing moves a lot of air for a 34' boat. I only went with a 40 cause the Californian really fogs up when we come in out of the wet. And it was only 300 bucks more than a 30. Course would have saved same amount if buying a 30 at the boatshow. Only thing I'm not sure about is both cold air returns are in ER. May route one outside and other near back of salon somewhere.

40DT under helm seat. Install a snap. 40 is just barely enough heat for main salon, aft cabin and aft head in 30-40 degree temps and wind. Single hot vent exiting in front of seat a little noisy...one vent aft head tee's in to main cabin (long run of ducting fitted nicely under side deck all the way and quieter) and exhaust is short and right out hull side just above rub rail.
