I have a 34'' boat with a diesel cook stove. It definately needs work, but rebuilding it would be cheaper than putting in a whole new propane stove and system. I am wanting any input on anyone using a diesel stove for cooking. One concern I have is the possible heat output to the cabin. I am in the NW, but plan to sail in the tropics. Also, my stove is not vented out, as are the new ones I''ve seen. Is this a disaster waiting to happen?
