What heater should I replace my Tiny Tot with (on a 28' Triton)

Hello all,

I just mostly decided to spend the winter on my boat rather than get an apartment (I'm working in Baltimore this winter). I'm on a Triton, a pretty small 28.5' boat. I have a Tiny Tot that I've been using with charcoal. It works ok, but it's messy and charcoal is a pain in the a## and I don't want to aspixiate myself.

I'd like to invest some money in a decent stove that would be nicer to use than the Tiny Tot. I have propane on the boat already and it would be easy enough to split the line for that.

But it seems like people like their Diesel heaters too. I have an outboard though, so currently don't have diesel on the boat and don't really love the idea of having 3 different fuels onboard, although if Diesel was somehow superior I would probably go for it.

I'm not sure how big a heater I would need.

Anyone have a suggestion for a wall mounted heater? Currently I have a Charlie Nobel with a 3" stovepipe.

Anyone familiar with this heater?

I could probably supplement with a small electric heater from the dock power which would be nice to keep my feet warm.

Thanks!
Paul

Oh and my other question, if I shrinkwrap the boat, can I extend a chimney up past the shrinkwrap?

Realistically speaking if you are tied to a dock and have 110 available just get an electric space heater. If you are on a mooring and expect to rely on anything but a full sized diesel heater, properly exhausted, you'll spend most of your time shivering. You may not be in New England, but it gets damn cold in Baltimore.
