Hi Glenn:

Definitely not Marine.  Might even be one purchased from Grainger.  New ones today are usually SS and made by various marine manufacturers.  Good place to start looking would be Raritan with offices in both NJ and FL.  If u need more sources, simply ask, I have a long list of manufacturers.

Is it in the engine compartment? If not and it works I’d leave it til it dies. 

I replaced my 1960’s water heater with a West Marine 11gal aluminum. It works well, keeps the water hot overnight when at anchor.

In the engine compartment. Is it the thermostat that is a problem with spark on home versions ?

I doubt it’s really a problem, people install them in garages. It’s just the fact that it’s not certified ignition protected. The one I bought from West Marine wasn’t much more than a home unit, I think it was on sale for $260ish plus it has provisions for using the engine to heat the water.
