I echo Pau's observation on the brothers. Never a sense of a question or inqury as being anything but important to you and them. Good post Pau.

The Wallas 40DT is what we went with. The install was easy:
  • Determine the placement of the heater unit and install
  • Figure out the ducting routing
  • Drill holes, install ductwork
  • Tap the tank, install fuel line and filter
  • Install electrical wiring and control panel
  • test system

The fuel pump is integrated into the unit, so there's one less part to have to run power and plumbing to. With the dual air inlets (outside and inside) the air in the boat is constantly being exchanged, and the boat stays dry.

The biggest selling point was (and remains) Bruce and Doug, the brother who run Scan Marine. They will either install it for you or walk you thru an install- and they always have time for their customers.
Did you install one DT40 or multiple ones, talked to our local supplier and he said one wouldn't be enough for our boat.........

We have three Wallas furnaces on our Bayliner 4788

A DT 30 for the salon
A DT 30 for the lower cabins
And a DT 20 for the pilothouse.

This allows us to have three heat zones based on elevation, which in our boat is how heating needs to be distributed.

Mike, we installed a single DT40. The heat is zoned to the aft cabin and salon, and keeps us toasty. I may add a 2nd Wallas if needs permit.

The DT40 should be more than enough for your 38. Call Scan Marine and talk to Doug or Bruce.
