Re: Coleman stove in the cockpit?

no problem.

many years ago i sold my albin vega to a young couple who wanted to take it to the bahamas. it had a kenyon two burner kerosene stove (you're probably not old enough to remember them).

two years later we met up with them in the bahamas. they had ditched the kero stove as too smelly and too complicated. instead they used a coleman lpg camp stove. they didn't use the small bottles; they hooked up a 20lb tank whenever they wanted to cook and then unhooked it. kept the 20lb bottle in the cockpit.

if you decide to use the 1lb bottles, remember that they can be refilled with a little attachment from a 20lb bottle (a lot cheaper than buying 1lb bottles). also, they fit inside a 4" pvc pipe, so with a little ingenuity you can make a topside storage container for them.

always store lpg containers outdoors. if the container leaks the gas is heavier than air and settles into the bilge. not good.....
