I am thinking about getting a tube heater for my boat, something that is cheap as chips to run and will stop the condensation. Has anyone got any experience of these types of heaters or have any other preferences? Cheers

They are fine if you have mains power.

I also use a small gas heater that operates from a butane cannister. Dont leave that one unsupervised but it is good for instant warmth.

Gas powered, not an option. Mains electric, not a problem as I'm marina based. I just need it to curtail condensation and a wee bit of frost protection. These tubular heaters come in three sizes 1ft = 60 watts, 2ft = 120 watts and 3ft = 180 watts none of these are thermostat controlled so they are always on. Would I be better off with a small oil filled radiator which I can set, by thermostat, to come on at a certain temperature

The alternative to stop condensation and the mould that will follow is ventilation followed by more ventilation and finally ventilation.  My yacht has 6 vents to keep the air moving.  If you go down the green house tube heater route, check the conditions of the marina that you are not going to be paying a fortune for the elec.
