New Oil Heater
45 year old Webasto heater
Impossible to find new spare parts - so had to install a new heater.
The new China-heater
Easy to install, easy to operate. Has been in use for a year now. No problems. Price of eBay.de was around 150 USD.
Control panel & Remote
From China - with love :-)
Oil filter & oil pump
Through Hull Exhaust
I modified the old exhaust, using an old block of mahogany.
Webasto Stainless Steel Through Hull Exhaust
Modified - so it still fits the old hole in the hull.
Exhaust from the oil heater mounted in the hull of "Galene"
Mounted with a heat resistant silicone
"Swan neck" - to prevent sea water running backwards into the oil exhaust
Stainless steel distance element
To prevent the very hot exhaust to set fire to the wooden floor.

Forward diesel tank
We carry around 420 liters of diesel, when both tanks are full. The tanks are combined.
Diesel pipe for the oil heater
The thin white/clear pipe with the two hose clamps, is the fuel line for the heater.
Done - the new oil heater is now in place
Control panel - mounted in the cockpit
When sitting in the saloon, the heater can be turned on and controlled by the remote control.
