The better "fire place" it is a wooden one, because it "warm up" you 3 time :
- when you are searching for wood
- when you cut the wood
- and (finally !) when burn it !!

If one day we change our small wooden one it could be for a bigger wooden one, with oven , glass to see fire and heater for the radiators.


Our actual small one at the bottom of this page
Isolation Thermique - Trawler long-cours

We also fit an exchanger on the engine cooling system for heat radiator it work ....under way

You are right !

Staying warm? 35C here today, and rising. Around 40C in the western suburbs which will miss out on the cooling sea breeze expected/hoped for later.

We're struggling to stay warm in South Florida's 75 degree weather, it's actually a major trouble. We may have to get a furnace of some sort.

That looks like a warm home. Simple effective reliable.

Seems its easier to keep warm compared to them always fighting the heat for some sleep.

For a boat depending on power pole for heat , an emergency method of heat may be required for a couple of weeks.

My choice , Eye Candy and super practical,

Soapstone and Tile Fireplaces

OFB - I'd still take the warm weather if I had a choice. But I don't, so the pellet stove has turned out to be a good heat source on my boat.

Forgot to mention, the pellet stove on low uses about 20 bags of pellets a month = $100 Does require a bit more upkeep than electric heaters though.

Here's our primary heat source in the main cabin. Three dedicated 30-lb propane tanks on the starboard deck feed the stove, which is properly vented through the overhead (no moisture released into the cabin). We spend about $45-50/month on propane, so it's fairly efficient heat source. Looks real nice, too. Keeps us 70-degrees in the winter. It has a 110V fan, but when underway or at anchor that kinetic EcoFan moves the heat around the room pretty good. Thought about replacing it before we bought the boat. The PO kept saying, "Just live one winter with it." He was right!

Liquid or gas fuel is the way to go as many marinas do not allow solid fuel due to the risk of sparks.

I'm a diesel stove guy.

SADLY this frequent concept of not attempting to understand why and how the PO used the boat is all too common.

Yes, Thelin's Little Gnome is their smallest. I think its rated at 25,000 or 28,000 BTU. But the footprint is 18 x 18 inches, and the Parlour 3000 is 40,000 BTU and only 20 x 20 inches, so that's the one I went with. Love the look of their stoves, but as I said their customer service leaves much to be desired. Parts are outrageous too.

I think I might try another brand next time, as there are a few other small ones out there. Jamestown J1000 and J2000, as well as a few I saw at Tractor Supply in the $1000-$1500 range. Theres even a window unit like a window a/c made by US Stoves.
