Installing Stove/Wood Burner On Boats.

Post by Dances With Otters » August 24th, 2017, 8:32 am

Understandably, most folks are a little apprehensive about installing a stove on their boats.
For me personally, drilling a big hole in the roof was my main concern and also heat transfer to combustible surfaces. Quite right to be concerned too as your life depends on it.
I followed this attached safety diagram and it has proved to be invaluable in getting it right.
One last thing, get and use a smoke alarm and a carbon monoxide alarm, no exceptions.

I recently installed mine, using that guide as a, er, guide. I was pretty apprehensive about doing it, too, but I'm damn glad I just went for it. What a difference!
Got a CO detector and installed a couple of vents. Should get a smoke detector too, I guess.
I've got wild staring eyes, and I've got a strong urge to fly ... but I've got nowhere to fly to

You'll be glad of that soon. I did two years without a heater, must have been a bit mental I think
