I think at least some J-boats come with Origo stoves as standard equipment. And I've seen them in a number of new trailer-sailor sized boats.

Didn't your mama ever ask you about your friends jumping off a cliff?

Seriously, try a non-pressurized alcohol stove. They really are much safer, and cheaper to install over-all (the stove-top is more pricy, but that is ALL you have to buy; no tank(s), no regulator, no hoses/tubing, no sniffer/alarm).

Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
