A friend who owns a C&C 34 uses two gimbaled oil lamps.  They warm the cabin nicely, even underway.  I have used a couple of backpacking/camping candle lanterns by UCO Gear  http://ucogear.com/candle-lanterns/ That provide heat enough to be quite comfortable.  If I am at the dock I use a little 120V, 1500W electric heater that has a nice thermostat on it -- 1500W is way too much so the thermostat is a necessity.  I also have a teardrop camper that has a 12V, 25amp heater, but that will run a battery down in about 4 hours but warms the small space in 30 minutes or so.  I also use a 120V, 250W heater in the teardrop from Walmart that works great.  No thermostat, but not necessary with the low power -- about equal to 4 -- 60W light bulbs.

I have not installed myself, but have seen kerosene heaters permanently installed online.

One other teardrop camper heat item we use is a 12V, maybe 5 amp electric blanket.  Works great and doesn't use so much power to warm up the sleeping bag.About $30 on Amazon or Walmart.

Thanks guys. I like the gimbaled lamp idea--maybe one in the forepeak and one in the main salon (which may have to be off for night sailing. Planning a week spring sail across Erie at possible freezing temps (night time)en route to warmer waters, so I don't' want to spend hundreds on what might be a temporary problem. Kerosene: (-) another fuel to store, (+) saves on batteries when off the dock. That last is a biggie--as near as I can tell, that 8-hp Yanmar has enough juice to either move the boat or recharge a battery.
