    The Webasto in our X5 provides the heat within seconds of a cold start in winter. Try offering the Gumtree wrecker $100 and see how you get on. They are a small unit. Without going out to the car to check, I'd say 200 x 150 x 150... there's a photo in the ebay advert I linked.

    Simple... and use 12v electrics. It's what I'd use if I needed to heat a boat.

Broad, wholesome and charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime" Mark Twain... so... Carpe the living sh!t out of the Diem

    I'd rather look back at my life and say "I can't believe I did that" instead of being there saying "I wish I'd done that"

    That would be why you need a heater!

    Seabird's heater is a Taylor.

    Do you think it might be where the deck is leaking too?

    Pretty good chance, I'd say! Keep a bucket under it and see.

    Do these diesel heaters in cars and boats burn the diesel with a little electric element?

    Our friend David has just offered to give me a water heater for Masina. Never been used, he reckons. I think it's just a little heat exchanger that attaches to the engine's heat exchanger outlet.

    The chineberspachers have a glow plug on start up and then just create heat by combining diesel and oxygen. We have a 20 litre water heater. Runs of 240 volts or heat exchanger from the engine. Works great. Hot water when we've been motoring is just like magic.
