That right there is why I used to heat (and do a lot of cooking) on wood in my boats. Ambiance. Beautiful.

And running on kero for a few minutes at the end of the heating season. Was also suggested for them all.
Here are some pictures of it and the install.
I put the stat above my berth i could turn it on and off or adjust the temp as needed throughout the year.
On the shoulder seasons I only run it in the morning before I get up and a couple of hours in the evening before bed.
Thanks!!

I've been thinking about this as well for the boat.

Not planning to winter over anywhere but these sure are nice.

My engines (outboards) run off gasoline so I was looking at that version. Alternative is to do electric heaters off the generator.

Thanks for the vote of confidence on these. I've heard they break down a lot but also heard that's due to sooting. Seems you have a technique to keep it at Bay and the gasoline ones really don't soot so I may go with this. It's annoying to have a generator running for heat.

Re: Wood Stove

wood is the best it warms you twice from cutting it!

I am making every night fires and also the wood stove itself is a propane tank and 2.5" steel exhaust pipe. Very good for cooking food, and smells nice outside from burning cedar.

One of my favorite quotes.

I always tell people "once from cutting it, once from stacking it and once from burning it". Warms 3 times ha ha ha

they come with their own day tank if you don't wantto to tap into the mains tanks or in your case have different fuel.

Holds 2.5 gallons of diesel .
Personally I would have an issue with one of these things burning gasoline .

Re: Wood Stove

Amanda, what's the fuel you're using for the Cubic Mini? I think in one of the shots posted up thread I can see plastic-wrapped briquettes of some type stacked in the fo'c'sle..?

Hi there,

I currently have a stash of Facto Energy Logs. In Vancouver you can get them at Rona stores. They are good b/c they break apart easy into the right size and they are pure wood (no waxes, fillers etc.). I emailed Cubic Mini asking for fuel recommendations and this is what they suggested. I DEFINITELY prefer wood over these as the smell is much nicer. The Facto logs smell very odd.

Re: Wood Stove

"I will definitely need wood or diesel. Just trying to understand the practicalities between the two."

An oil fueled diesel heater or range like a Dickinson can be turned on in October and turned off in May after the water warms.

A wood stove may or may not be large enough to accept fuel that will go 8-12 hours so you are trapped on board , or the fire goes out.

The heat output is about the same, near 20,000 BTU for an oil range which will keep you warm as it cooks or bakes .And a hot beverage is always a delight.

dickinsonmarine.com › product › atlantic-diesel-cook-stove

AS it takes time to light the oil fired ranges and for them to come to temperature , live aboard's use them all winter and simply plop a 2 burner stove (propane or kerosene) on top for warm weather use.

No electric required if fuel is gravity fed.

Re: Wood Stove

"No reason why saloon ceilings should not be insulated with 20-50mm of foam insulation, at least, as this would help prevent rising hot air simply losing all its heat to the atmosphere through a non-insulated ceiling/deckhead."


Most of the insulating foam sold in box stores ignites very easily , might not be #1 choice for covering an overhead in a cabin with a fire..

Re: Wood Stove

Love the stove, and your installation looks great Amanda. Can you say anything about soot production on deck or around the chimney? I'd love to go with a Cubic. I'm just not sure ...

Is it harder to insure the boat with a wood stove? Isn't diesel more expensive if used regularly?

I'm trying to learn as much as I can before making the transition so that I can have a cozy first winter living aboard. Thank you to all for sharing your wisdom.

You need a lot more wood to get the same BTU's as diesel. When you compare them on that level, wood is actually expensive.
