Re: Butane camp stove in cabin

I use two butane camping stoves side by side in my boat - both single burners and very cheap. The canisters are stored in a proper air tight compartment near the transom and vented overboard. I built separate compartments for each with a lid to give extra bench space when not using the stoves. They are gimballed with a lead weight under the support frame. I also made some stainless retaining pot rails that bolt to each stove top. The red cap from the butane canister is left on the bench top while using the stove to serve as a reminder that a canister is inside the cabin. If the stove is not in use the rule for us is that the canister goes outside into the storage compartment. We also ensure there is always good ventilation within the galley.
