Re: Alcohol stoves in use?

The PO replaced the pressurized stove with an Origo. At first I planned to convert to propane but the installation would have been really difficult, retro-fitting a thirty foot Tartan. As I started to use the Origo I found that it was much faster than I expected, and cooked very well.

ABYC standards require a dedicated locker sealed off from the inside of the boat with a vent out though the hull that is lower than that of the botton of the locker. Its very tough to arrange that in a 30' hull.
