      I don't know anything about the Planar units, but the AirTronic D5 is an awesome unit. I'll be looking at that one as a replacement for the one I have now someday.

        Bear in mind you will also need to run air ducting and have an exhaust port which is unconstricted and can blow hot exhaust without getting close to anything moored immediately next to the exhaust.
        LOL.... A few years ago my buddy caught a dock on fire with his heater exhaust. :blush:
        I once saw a boat with a fender hung right in front of the heater exhaust. That fender melted like you would not believe. Pretty much turned to goopy black liquid and ran down the side of the boat. He was very lucky that it didn't catch fire.

          My buddy's incident was quite hilarious. He and his wife were asleep in their GB-42 at a marina guest dock. She woke him up at 4:00 AM or so and told him she smelled smoke. He got up and saw a glow coming from the salon windows. He ran outside with a fire extinguisher and started fighting the fire. Then he grabbed a water hose and continued. By the time the fire was out, the commotion had woken up a number of the other cruisers on the guest dock. It was then that he realized that all he was wearing were his BVDs. :P
