Solid Fuel Cabin Heater

14 Aug 2015

I have a solid fuel cabin heater and am wondering if it is even worth keeping.  It is seems to be a rather unique unit since I have never seen another one like it online.  Bulkhead mounted, fairly heavy, brass & tile, like a mini fireplace with a brass cover piece for the opening.  I ended up with smoke in the cabin when using wood and/or pressed wood chips, it seems to be tough to control and I would never use it while the boat is moving.  Has anybody seen this type or experience with solid fuel cabin heaters?  Would a gas or diesel replacement be better?  torstendoering@outlook.com

(BTW, the Oceanair shades you can see work out great...)
