Hello! New to the site

Proud new owner of a Pacific Seacraft 37. I am replacing the wiring and several other components. Any ideas and suggestions will be appreciated. Specifically I am looking for a new heat source for the cabin.

Re: Hello! New to the site

Welcome to CF! Lots of info here.

Why don't you just jump right in and start a thread - try the refit forum for your wiring questions and liveaboard forum for heat.

Just to start you off we have 2 Dickinson diesel stoves. The large Atlantic model in the forward area is our heat, hot water and cook stove. The smaller Adriatic model is aft in the sleeping quarters. I love the dry heat. With both stoves running in the middle of winter we use just under 2 gals a day.

Good luck on your projects!
It's what you learn after you know it all that counts...

For all of your celestial navigation questions:
A house is but a boat so poorly built and so firmly run aground no one would think to try and refloat it.

Re: Hello! New to the site

I'm going the Webasto/Eberspacher route, which I had on my previous boat and is unbeatable for instant heat in cold climates. However, the thinking may be that some of the cheap clones are surprisingly similar albeit with poor quality accessories. Getting two heaters at $400-500 each plus some quality exhaust fittings and insulation to improve the safety would give spares, compared to $4000 (over here) for one of the "name brand" systems.
