No, neither. Why not respond to the substance of my point regarding relative safety of various fuels rather than name calling? My initial response was surprise about the huge difference in BTU's between the two Dickinson Newports. I still think with both installed and maintained perfectly, they are not equally safe. Still waiting for a logical explanation for why that's not true but open minded about being wrong.

Re: Propane Dickson cabin heater

Alberg30shill,
Wondering why you decided to turn a for sale ad into a diatribe regarding the pros and cons of fuels?
It was really juvenile of you to comment on how unsafe YOU feel about propane use on a boat, possibly killing my sale of the heater. If you want to discuss the relative pros and cons of different fuels, start your own thread about it.
The buyer wanted a propane heater, so he likely knows about how to handle propane installations properly.

I will take note of your screen name, and give my comments about whatever it is that you would like to sell in the future.

You accuse me of being juvenile and go on to threaten to sabotage an unrelated future post for revenge? Threatening me is never a good tactic. Your item is sold so I don't see your problem. Step back.

An apology would be appropriate and appreciated but not expected.

Peace.

I'm sure it will give you years of safe reliable heating. I simply observed the big difference in BTU's between the two fuels, and contradicted a statement claiming they were EQUALLY safe all things being equal (installation/maintenance) which is not true.

Re: Propane Dickson cabin heater

As someone who also eschews propane in favor of safer fuels I feel particularly qualified to say:

Put a sock in it Alberg30Shill, nobody wants to hear you whining about propane in the middle of a for sale thread. If you want to bitch about your propane conspiracy go start your own thread to do so that way we can ignore you easier.

Alberg; this running argument you are having (with yourself) over which heater is safest is totally infantile and stupid because, according to Dickinson (whose company store is just 4 short blocks from my home) tell me it is not reflected in their sales numbers. In fact, sales of propane heaters far exceed the number of diesel heaters; same goes for propane stoves and BBQ's, which effectively belies your personal opinion.

I very much doubt thousands of boat owners would favour a product in such numbers, were it considered to be as "dangerous" as you claim. Furthermore, it is painfully obvious you love to argue in a futile attempt to establish your line of thought as being 'factual' when nothing could be further from the truth and, in so doing, refusing to accept a majority of people do not share your opinion ... one that you have stated a number of times in this thread. The forum accepts you are entitled to your (own) opinion, no matter how wrong you might be. After all, using your logic, just about anything used on a boat can be considered dangerous and should not be used.

Please don't bother responding as your argument has become both tedious, and boring.

You just totally misrepresented my position and statements and then told me not to reply because you already understand my position. Clearly you don't.

To repeat...

I simply observed the big difference in BTU's between the two fuels, and contradicted a statement claiming they were EQUALLY safe all things being equal (installation/maintenance) which is not true.

Which of those two facts are you objecting to?

I am going to guess Alberg30Shill and Boatguy30 are one in the same.
