Can you help me identify this heater?

Hello everyone,
Can someone out there please identify this bulkhead mounted heater? It was on my boat when I purchased it and I have not had very good luck in trying to use it, as such I would like to replace the burner etc however I do not know where to get parts. There is a diesel/kerosene pressure tank on the other side of the bulkhead that you can not see.
Thank you.

I can't help you with id on the heater but see some problems with it. First, it is monted too high. You will end up with frozen feet and roasted head without a fan to circulate air. The flue pipe is pretty small. From what I hear, the diesel heaters with less than 3" diameter flues have serious problems with back drafts coating the interior of the boat with soot.

What's the burner look like?? I had a Taylor that used a standard kerosene stove burner. If you know what those look like, you are in luck as they are pretty much universal. The problem is propane has drastically cut the popularity of kero stoves and the burners are getting hard to find and expensive.
