    Comments about Dickinson Marine Direct Vent Propane Fireplace Heater:

    My wife and I have lived on sail boats for several years and sail most weekends with the occasional "real trip". I installed this heater after a brutal winter and it has improved our standard of living considerably. Installation was easy. I mounted it to the bulkhead, cut a hole in the deck, ran the pipe, ran the power, ran the propane line and sealed it. We use about a tank of propane a week (on high) and let it run nearly continuously from December through early march. This was a fantastic purchase. Understand that if any saltwater breeches the stack and enters the combustion chamber, it will kill your heater. To mitigate issues, I wrap the vent in plastic and then place a custom canvass cover on top. Great heater.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Fantastic.

      Comments about Dickinson Marine Direct Vent Propane Fireplace Heater:

      As you will be aware from the negative review the heater is prone to problems if water is ingested via the heater stack. Sig Marine makes a waterproof cover that fits over the stack. I use it whenever I am not actively using the heater and it keeps things dry. I wish that Sig shipped this cover with the standard heater, I suggest it is a necessary part of the install.

      As I anticipated air circulation is less than optimal. The fan makes quite a bit of noise at high speed and does churn out quite a bit of air. At least on my boat I need a second fan to move the heater air away from the heater and circulate it around the cabin.

      Last comment - true of all heaters and A/C units. Your boat, if not insulated (and most aren't) is going to revert quickly to the temperature of the surrounding water once the heater is turned off. Sitting in St. John's harbor (Newfoundland) in 40 degree water the heater was able to keep me warm but as soon as I turned it off down went the temperature.

          Comments about Dickinson Marine Direct Vent Propane Fireplace Heater:

          When I bought my boat this heater, chimney, and deck vent were already installed. I have a multihull so I dont get green water over the bow, but I do get a little sea spray. Coming up the Baja we hit big waves and got some sea spray over the bow and over a few days the deck vent let in some water. When we reached Long Beach I noticed that the water had evaporated and left some salt crystals in the heater. I dismantled it and sent it in for a service. The manufacturer said it was impossible to service and suggested I buy a brand new one.
          Dont buy this - firstly the deck fitting let in sea spray, and secondly the little that came in killed the heater. You dont want to own anything this FRAGILE.
