    Those work fine, you shouldn't have any fumes if the propane is attached properly. If it's leaking, you'll smell it! Don't store propane below decks, only out in the open. That heater should also have a low-oxygen sensor that will shut it down.

      Also install your own sensor in case the one on the unit doesn't work. It will warn you. Its not the fumes I would worry about, its the lack of oxygen. Also I would leave a vent open a bit.

        I used to use a coleman stove to heat the back of my VW van on campouts and overnights. It worked fine but I was always careful to open a vent high and low across from each other ventilate naturally. There weren't any auto shut offs then and I wouldn't trust the one on the heater itself either if I was going to be sleeping nowdays. I would imagine that your second biggest concern would be finding a place to set it where it won't accidentally get in contact with flammables :sorrow:and catch the boat on fire.
