Just wondering about Eberspachers..as you do..oh...just me then.

Anyway - What are the pros and cons of the Air type vs the water type. To my thinking the wet type with a few blown matix around the boat has to give a better heat transfer and more even heat than the air type?

Would be interested in peoples experiances.

advantages of the latter idea:

if you have large diesel engines under the saloon floor and they are preheated through an eberspacher or etc... once you get them well warmed you start to turn them into radiators...

the resulting underfloor heating is quite pleasant in the evenings...

Was going to ask whether there was a problem with water making its way forward against the inertia of the boat but then remembered there wouldn't be any :grin:

But by the same token the water in the system will remain on both sides of the boat, not just one side or the other on a frequently changing basis :grin:
