Old Water Heater

We own a 1979 Pearson 365 ketch, the water heater died and no one has any info on this particular brand: Atlantic Stainless, out of Miami, FL- 120VAC/1000watt T6E-D. It looks to be a 5 gallon and maybe original. Any help out there?

I will probably need a brand new one and if so, what brands are people endorsing these days?

Re: Old water heater question.

I think Atlantic is out of business. They were good tanks. I think the main thing with a new tank is where the hoses connect and whether the new tank can be installed without needing longer hoses or electrical wire run.

Re: Old water heater question.

What is dead on the old one? If just the electric then you can very likely find replacement heating elements from a standard plumbing supply house. Far as I know, the marine heaters did not have special, custom made elements.

On the other hand, if it's leaking and corroded then it's new heater time.
