Cabin Heaters
« on: May 25, 2019, 11:05:59 PM »

I'm sailing my Catalina in Sydney Harbour, Australia, and require a portable cabin heater for, at most, 3 months each winter.
I'm looking at what is available and have come across a Corona kerosene heater, maximum output 2.4kw. Has anyone any advice
re safety, stowage, alternative heater, etc.... I'd only be using the heater while at anchor or on a mooring. Looks like the Corona will
fit nicely on a plinth on the the floor of my forward cabin. Appreciate any advice.

Jack,

There are usually two other things you need with a kerosene heater.  Alcohol to light the wick, and a fan above to distribute the air.   If you have the opportunity to see one in action, you should.  Mine's quite loud.

Good luck.
