Re: Alcohol stoves in use?

Just curious, are there any brand new production boats that use anything else but propane or natural gas? A sign of the times? I was at the Annapolis boat show a couple of years ago but I don't remember if any of the new boats were using anything but propane?

My boat presently uses pressure alcohol and I was thinking of converting to propane. It seems that is what is used all the other boats I get to board around here.
