Re: Diesel Air Heater
Christopher- I have also considered installing one of these. The cheap eBay ones (<$200) have received good reviews on YouTube. My thought was to mount the smaller version at the bottom of the wet locker pointed aft and have the heat duct run aft through the bulkhead and make a left turn to blow warm air into the cabin from a vent under the sink. It might be a long run for the heat duct to get to the cockpit, but I believe it should still work, though the larger version would be in order for that job. The muffler and exhaust pipe for the diesel exhaust could go straight up through the cabin roof and would be hidden by the wet locker face. The heater fuel tank could be mounted in a variety of areas such as the above the heater in the wet locker, under the sink or in the V-berth. My plan was to get a smaller tank and just refill it as necessary.
Of course all of this is speculative and if I do go this route, there would likely be modifications to this plan.
