Diesel heater for my SR 210: suggestions?

Unread post by jerryd »

Hi friends.
Am thinking seriously about getting a diesel heater installed in my Sea Runner 210 this winter. (Jay Marie)
(hardtop with bulkhead door)

Any suggestions from those of you who have gone through an installation and have some words of wisdom for me?

Appreciate any and all advice!
:)

I have an Espar D4 heater on my 220OP HT ET.... it has performed flawlessly for the past three years. I also made sure to place the heater ducting with directional louvered vents up onto the dash so it serves as a defroster also..

Now with that said, I also hear a lot of very positive reports on the Planar heaters sold by forum member BK on here. I would seriously look into that option..

I'd highly recommend contacting Brian about the Planar and not just because he's a site sponsor - https://www.bkmarineservices.com/

I second/third the recommendation of BK Marine Services. Amazing customer service, heater works well, price is right. Installation was pretty easy.

I got the Planar 44D installed, maybe a bit overkill but it sure doesn't take long to heat up the cabin.
