Re: Wood, Diesel or propane bulkhead heating stove?

Interesting thread! I have a bulkhead mounted stainless steel "Shipmate" stove which came with a 1978 Pearson 323 I recently purchased (and it seems to be made by a company other than the one that produces small cast iron stoves of the same name). It's not clear which solid fuels are appropriate to use in it. It has a fairly small firebox with a beefy cast iron grate and a small, removable ash drawer under it. I have burned 6-8 charcoal briquettes at a time and warmed the cabin quickly from the ambient 40F to 70F with low stack temperatures, but refueling was needed every 45-60 minutes. Does anyone one else have one of these stoves? If so, what solid fuels have you used in it and what do you recommend?
