Re: Butane camp stove in cabin
I have a small galley, and want to keep it simple (and inexpensive
). Would it be safe to cook on a butane camp stove in the cabin, if we store the butane canister outside on the rail? Needless to say, I will only be cooking at anchor. I am mostly concerned about the safety having the gas canister in the cabin.
I think you're going about it sensibly, and will be ok.
Just store the cans outside (but don't let them get rusty) and try to have some ventilation while you're cooking.
You could install a CO detector if you're really worried, but I think it's overkill.
