Once you pick which one you want - shop! You will be surprised how much delivered price varies.
Ebay is usually your friend if you buy from an ebay business.

Maybe this should be a different topic, but....

Any comments about "on demand" tankless electric heaters?

I like the general concept. I used to have a whole-house kerosene water heater. It provided limitless, cheap hot water. Obviously, the small electric marine units are a completely different animal. It still seems tempting on a boat.... Small, cheap, efficient....

On demand electric requires alot of electric. I don't think your boat's wiring could handle it. I am thinking one sink on demand needs 20 amps or so.
