Manufactured/Prefab Fireplaces
Built with a sheet metal firebox, a double or triple walled metal pipe running up inside a wood framed chase, and a chase cover and cap/spark arrestor at the top. Saltwater in close proximity causes this kind of chimney to rust, but it’s economical to the more expensive masonry chimney.

Masonry Fireplaces
Features tiles that implement the flue to prevent corrosion in the chimney flue lining. These are not earthquake-resistant!
