Oh, one more thing noticed the "non-pressurized" statement about alcohol stoves... Well thats not entirely true... its still a low pressurized system... you have to pump it up. At least on mine. and its a liquid that will flow out and down.

The first time I tried mine (when I got the boat home on purchasing) ... I just about ripped it out of the cabinet to throw it over board (on land)... had me spooked with 18" high flames before I could get the valve off. Never used it again on board. I did pull it and test in on the ground... but never did get it to function proper... not going to bother.
