Silent Maid has a nice little diesel stove made by Wallace. It has a ceramic cook top when the lid is open and acts as a cabin heater when the lid is down. A squirrel cage blower forces air over the cook top to heat the air. I've used it to dry things out and it does warm the cabin well when the companionway hatches are closed.
John made a beautiful cover for the vent stack by gluing up a birdsmouth tube from 1/4" mahogany and giving it an "S" curve by clamping it to a scribed pattern before the epoxy kicked.
