Default Mr. Heater vs. Paulin heaters for Drift Boat?

Greetings: Nothing like snow and ice to bring out the heater topics.

First, let me say thanks to all who commented in my post about the Coleman heaters. The clear verdict was that the Coleman's (Power Cat or Black Cat) do not have enough power for an open drift boat.

Everyone recommended a radiant heater such as:

</font>
  1. <font size="2" face="verdana,arial,helvetica">Mr. Heater Model MH12TS
    Includes Electronic Spark Ignition
    Variable Output Of 8, 12 & 14,000 BTU/Hr.
    Hi/Medium/Low Regulator
    Safety Shutoff
    Soft Nose P.O.L.
    For Direct Connection To 4-20 lb. Cylinder</font>
  2. <font size="2" face="verdana,arial,helvetica">Paulin Single Burner Propane Heater (1500/EZ)
    Tank top single burner propane heater, safety shut-off valve, three setting regulator (Hi, Med, Low), 9,000-15,000 BTU, available with MatchLight or EZ Electronic Puch Button ignition.</font>
<font size="2" face="verdana,arial,helvetica"> Both heaters have electronic ignition. Both sell for about $50.00.
GI Joes and Sportsmens sell Mr. Heater.
Fishermens sells Paulin.

So, which is best? Or is there a third and better brand? Also, I any great suggestions about mounting or placing them in an Alumaweld DB? Thanks, in advance, for the advise. Good fishing. Drifter.

Had dual Paulins in my DB for 13 years. One mounted in the bow and the other on a long line behind the oarsman seat. The one under the bow lasted the whole time. Just replaced the ignition switch once or twice. The one out back had to be replaced due to exposure. Keep them covered when not in use to avoid rust from the rain. The Paulins come with a stand that I used to cook with when I was at anchor waiting for the fish to hit! Nothing like Bacon and eggs while fighting a fish! :smile:

Mark: You are the first person to recommend the Coleman for a drift boat? Why do you like them? Is the 3000 BTU enough? Drifter.

Paulin with the 16oz bottles here. I have always used it as a heater never for cooking but one day I'll get brave.
