Thank you all. We will not be spending time cruising in 20 degree F weather but certainly at 30F. We had a Dickinson wall hung unit on a DeFever 44 a number of years ago and enjoyed it when it was working but found the morning ritual of wadding up Kleenex to light it and waiting for forty five minutes for the heat to show up a bit tedious. Leaving it on all day worked great at heating the salon and galley but did virtually nothing for the staterooms.

I am thinking about removing one or both of the air conditioners and replacing them with a single forced air unit with four outlets (salon, head, pilothouse and forward in the single stateroom). The Wallas 40Dt is sized for up to 15 meter boat (49 ft) and the positive words on Scan Marine, the importer and dealer, is very reassuring. We might consider a smaller unit combined with a Dickinson Alaskan or Antarctica floor mounted heater in the salon. I'm waiting for the Seattle Boat Show to see what prices are being offered.

Thanks again for the responses.
