Nick-

Welcome to sailnet.

Are you aware that the thread you've responded to is over six years old...and as such, should probably have been left for dead. Reviving old threads is considered bad net etiquette...so please avoid doing it in the future.

BTW, one reason many people have gotten rid of pressurized alcohol stoves is how dangerous they can be. A non-pressurized Origo or a LPG setup would serve you far better IMHO. Also, alcohol is one of the most expensive fuels, in terms of heating capacity per dollar, and if you're planning on doing anything longer term in duration, you'll probably be far happier with an LPG solution.

That said, if you do go with upgrading to LPG, you really should install a propane sniffer.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
