I have a miner lamp that work really well. It takes up half of the space that the big trawler style lamps do, burns bright and clean, and i can sit it down anywhere because it has a flared base. It also has a good hook for hanging where I want it.

I use Weems & Plath brand paraffin fuel, burns bright and clean, no smoke. I have two dorades in the main cabin that keep the boat well ventilated, and i just barely crack (1/2") the companionway slide for a little extra. I have a CO detector right near the area that has never gone off because of the lamp (cooking is another story). It's a small lamp, not a camp fire.
