Decision, finally

After much cogitation and various mock-ups we decided to go with the Refleks 66 MW stove in copper with a view window installed, mounted on the Port side bulkhead just high enough to get toes under when lying on my side, with lots of room for toes outboard of the stove when on my back.

I hate to give up the cook top but this stove is MUCH narrower without the flared base of the Refleks 66 MK with cook top. One advantage (I hope) of this stove is that I can run a length of flexible flue down to the floor to suck some of the cold air up for combustion.

Refleks will also make up a special length of stovepipe to accommodate the various offsets so I can use the existing hole for the dorade which will probably move forward of the bulkhead.

The gravity tank will go in the hanging locker right up under the deck with a deck fill pipe.

I'm not sure it will actually go in this year but I'll take lots of pictures whenever it does.
