Combustion options for this appliance are wood, charcoal briquettes or similar solid fuels that can be burned. Slow burning fuels are recommended. Care must be taken not to overfill the combustion chamber as this can damage the heater. The heater is rated for approximately 8000 btu’s. This will be equal to a small handful of briquettes, 1 or 2 slices of presto logs at 1” thick or equivalent sizing for wood or other solid fuels.
Certain brands of engineered firewood can burn with an enhanced level of heat so caution must be used. Refrain from burning any manufactured wood with an artificially increased btu rating. When using engineered firewood, cleaning of the firebox and exhaust chimney may be required.
I installed this Dickinson stove in our 29 foot wooden ketch to replace a 40 year old Cole stove that was finally too corroded to repair. The Dickinson is at least as robust as the Cole stove and with its additional replaceable double firebox lining, I expect it will last decades. We burn coal, and it quickly warms our small cabin in the blustery and foggy Northern California waters. Dickinson recommends a minimum 4 foot stove pipe, but we have only a little more than a 2 foot chimney and the draft is almost always adequate even when we use the stove under way at sea. When we stuff the firebox with coal and bank down the dampers, the stove keeps us warm all night in our small cabin. (Leave open some outside ventilation and install a CO monitor.) The flicker of the fire compliments the warm glow of the kerosine lamps as we swing at anchor in some coastal cove.
I gave the stove only 4 stars as the firebox is even smaller than the Cole stove, and it may not adequately heat a boat that is any larger or in a cold clime.
The Dickinson Newport Solid Fuel is hard to beat as a heater - it is efficient and mounts off the floor, out of the way - but it is not a stove. If you are willing to order from Europe or Canada, there are a number of stove suppliers for small cabins located there. Honestly, those are even dwindling as we send a number of Newport Diesel Heaters to Norway, Canada and Sweden every year. Pound for pound, diesel fuel is hard to beat and easy to use.
