Dickinson Diesel Heater...or Reflux Diesel Heater where you are is your best choice. Not much to go wrong. The problem with the forced air heaters (and I have one) is they are good for 2000 hours (which is not much) and then they have to have a total service overhaul for about $ 1800.00 so it ends up being about a buck an hour (plus the cost of the diesel) to run and they always go out in the winter and you have to wait 6-8 weeks to get them serviced. I have four different sources of heat on my boat...AC plug in electric space heater, the engine when it is running puts out a lot of heat and heats the water, a forced air Webasto Diesel Furnace, and I am putting in a Dickinson Diesel Bulkhead heater now. Best..."SV Aquila"...Seattle

Wood stove. Put in kindling. Light it. Put wood on top. Wonderful heat, a deep heat that sinks into your bones, really warms 'em up. Plus wonderful cabin ambiance. In an urban area with no available wood? Charcoal briquettes. Put 'em in small paper bags. Put some briquettes into old pickle jar; pour in kerosene to cover. Are you cold? Use tongs to remove kerosene-soaked briquette, put in stove, light it. Put paper bag of briquettes on top. Soon, cold no more! Cheaper, better, simpler. Like tiller is to pedestal steering , hanks are to furler, oar is to engine. You're young, you'll learn. Simple, strong, inexpensive is almost always better than fancy, complicated, expensive, "modern." Especially aboard ship.

You must invest In A cheap 100 euro all in one Chinese desiel heater.for emergencies like this . I have o e and its a revelation.. Has been completly reliable for a year just plug it into a 12v supply fill the built in tank with desiel and it will heat the boot in seconds. Also thi k seriously about the Chinese heaters for you main heater. They are all webasto copies as the 1st gen patent on Those ran out five years ago allowin g good quality cheap clones to be made at a 10th of the price

Had a boat that came with a thermostat controlled fancy forced fuel diesel furnace of similar dimensions to yours. It was noisy, the nozzle kept getting carboned up and would burn out the heat exchanger. Most of these units are only intended for occasional weekender off season sailors not liveaboarders like you and my family and I were doing. We got rid of it and replaced it with a drip feed diesel heater which was quieter and worked way better all winter. An even better arrangement on my last boat was a drip feed diesel stove with oven made by Dickinson here in Canada. Good dry heat, good cooking stove, and used the diesel from the tanks that the engine drew from as well. The only electronics: a fan for optimum combustion pot flame efficiency. The diesel for it gets hand pumped into a gravity feed day tank. In the summer, I connect a proper plumbed in propane cooktop to put on the diesel stove grill. You should look into commercial boat quality and ideas for your type of boating heating needs. Standard cook stove and heating on the fishing boats here in British Columbia are simple reliable drip feed diesel stoves. Some even have built in water tanks that can extend hot water out. Enjoying your videos very much. Thank you and smooth sailing.

We had a similar issue with our Eberspacher. It turned out we had crushed some of the hot air ducting that distributes air to the cabins. The constriction meant that not enough air could be pushed through the ducts to cool the unit and it overheated and shut down. See if you have any blockages or restrictions, especially if the replacement unit shows the same bahaviour. Good luck with it all 👍👍

As I watched Johan struggle, I identified. I'm sitting on my settee floating in Toronto and it's about to start snowing, I use a knockoff Chinese diesel heater & it shut down one night here over the winter when the temp was -13C Fuel line had gelled on me - if you get one do not use the green supplied aquarium air stone style of fuel line, use a proper sized 2mm ID fuel supply line or you too will have a gelling problem someday. Avoid additives to fuel like antigel in all makes and models of diesel heaters add a secondary filter if you're a fan of additives for your motor because eventually you'll have buildup of wax and varnish - the heaters lack the exhaustive force that a motor has to clean build up.

How does Johan remain so calm when faced with such a frustrating situation? Not a single curse, well at least not on camera! Malin remains pretty even tempered even when the boat is cold. Such excellent character traits for cruising or parenting! Does your engine have a boat heater running off of the engine hot water when you are underway? We had one of these and it proved to be very reliable (when the engine was running). Hope the heater situation gets sorted out soon. Cheers from Juneau Alaska, - Greg Chaney

I can’t believe you can only have 6,7 to 15 amps of power. I guess it being a higher voltage in your area helps keep the amps down. Over here in Yankee land my little Beneteau 393 has two 30 amp shore power connections but at 120 vac. I’m such a power hog.

Johan, I completely agree with your philosophy on investing in a new piece of equipment rather than trying to try to bring to new life old stuff if the price difference is 50% only Apart from the money, iI think it’s also giving a value to your time which you have to invest in the repair. My raw water pump on the vp2003 started leaking - she is old like the boat/engine (32) years; I changed by routine the impeller and the paper gasket - so minimal investment of time and money - still leaking. Ordered new johnson raw water pump and will keep old one in the spare magazine. Do not want to have an issue when we are on summer cruise/holidays 400 nm far from home. What a nice spacious engine room! Ciao Dirk / centurion 38 / Genoa, Italy

You need a wooden stove to heat the internal part of the boat which most boats now have. This can be used as a alternate which you now have in case of a malfunction.

I heard "off-road diesel" creates more soot than "road diesel". If the heater isn't old, a good manufacturer would send you a working replacement while they refurbished your old one.

A wise choice I think. It is worth keeping the fan motor and trying to service it as a temporary spare. You wit likely find the bearings are seizing. I have rebuilt countless electric motors, from tiny CPU and PC fans to large industrial motors. These smaller motors are often bushed phosphor bronze or a self lubricating sintered bearings which eventually get caked up with metallic sludgeand dirt. They then overheat and dry out. Cleaning them out even with a bit of WD40 will generally give themsome extra usable life.

Refleks. For liveaboards: Refleks. Different versions for different boatsizes, with or without warm water sleeves, and first choice quality. They even have a version for trawlers which basically is a central water heating. I had a couple, and I would not try webastos or eberspächers for longterm use again. Even had an elder Refleks I took off a customers boat, revised it and built it into a workshop-trailer I kept for some years with that thing flawlessly working winter for winter 24/7 to keep resins and chemicals from freezing when I was out working in cold worksites. Get one. They might even give You a good price with 118 k subbies. You won't regret it, should You plan to keep grazing Your home coasts for another year or so, you'll ask Yourself why You didn't get one way earlier when You'll have used it the first week.

You know I think if I had a diesel heater I would probably just get two of those cheap Chinese ones so I had a back up. There is always something that needs fixing on a boat. Glad to know you guys are OK. I haven't watched much sailing content lately, I think you picked a pretty good time to go back to Sweden from your globe trotting adventures. Seems like one of the only countries that hasn't succumbed to total hysteria this last year.

So sorry you had to go through this in the Winter. We have the same Airtronic on our boat in Norway. Fortunately if it goes bad we also have a Refleks so we won’t freeze to death. Even with a house I always Eliezer in two sources of heat and one that does not depend on electricity. I think your final decision was good although one always thinks twice about buying a product again that fails so easily.

Hej, det var samma fel på min Planar värmare. Motorn började låta lite konstigt några veckor innan semestern. Fick typs att beställa en Kinesisk värmare från EBay DE ca 1200 sek just in case (5 arbetsdagar leveranstid med DHL). Gissa vad, Planar värmaren gick sönder redan förta kvällen... Att byta ut den har tagit max 1 timme ( samma dimension på avgas, bränsle och luft). Sedan dess min båt har en fungerande värmare redan i 3 år.

Awkward that heater problem. I often think they are designed to solve a problem that doesn't exist. When you consider the batteries, charging and generating equipment needed to operate one not to mention fuel capacity, they take up a massive amount of space and resources. Just to give a sting in the tail need to be perfectly set up and even then are often unreliable. V's a wood or solid fuel burner or even a solid fuel burner with a primus cooker type burner in it - no electric, no computer, completely under immediate control.

i was confused, cause you installed a Planar I thought. But now i checked it. it comes with the new boat. ok. i also live on board in germany, cold north. i have installed 2 same heaters (planar 4). and i can change (with the same stuff in the box to put out) the airtubes. so if i have a problem i can handle it easier and have not 7 Degrees in the morning. I now what you mean with that.

You probably have solved the heater problem by now, but even so: have you checked that the air intake tube allows free flow of air? I had an overheating problem on my Webasto heater and it turned out to be partly blocked/collapsed air tube that caused it.

I dunno what's wrong with your heater really, but my old gas space heater the thermocouple would be placed too close to the pilot light after a maintenance clean and re-install. This bi-metal thermocouple opened a thermostatic control valve that shut off the gas: intended for temperature control. Maintenance begins when soot clogs the pilot flame, over time the pilot flame dims and burns weakly, which more or less prevents the primary jets staying open properly: kind of a Push-and-Pull system. So the heater appears to not work. After a maintenance cleanout soot inside the pipe was vacuumed out from the pilot nozzle. New problem, the thermocouple is now too close to the blazing pilot light. Because the pilot flame jet can glow like a Saturn 5 Rocket launch. after it is cleaned. The old units like this could produce carbon monoxide, sometimes killed people, gave others headaches, and the model was recalled by the manufacturer.

I think you made a smart decision by ordering a new heater as one never knows what 'rabbit hole' lies ahead when fixing a heater that doesn't work. On another note, I really like the villages you are visiting but wonder how the houses that are right on the water manage their sewage? From what I can see, most of the ground is bedrock so a septic field would be impossible. I find it hard to believe that they would discharge their waste directly into the water.

I live onboard too, and a heating system failure always and only happens in the winter. Because of that, I have 2 independent heating systems on diesel and propane, and a portable petroleum heater. and also Brüder Mannesmann petroleum lamp that emits a lot of heat. My diesel Chinese diesel heater that I bought last year on aliexpress for 120,- euro keeps my boat comfortable with 1,5 liter fuel a day. and beats my Trumatic propane heater in fuel consumption and efficiency.

I went thru 3 heaters; all had problems at the worst time...when it's cold. All had "factory parts" requirements; pain. A friend'/scientist who sails to the Arctic every year convinced me to build my own and run a simple computer fan (5 spares=$10) and a copper tube wrap to heat my onboard water and total cost was $80 plus chimney...also dirt cheap. This unit uses 1/8th the fuel of the best factory model on low and can handle much more fuel if I really crank it up; no problems. Another friend with a full Dickerson Arctic has problems with her unit. Mine will last 50 years, but no glow plug. Start fuel drip, wait 10 seconds, light and bang; heat. I would never trust a factory unit again.
