Re: Alcohol stoves in use?
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).
Sounds good, not ready to jump off the cliff yet but I don't know anyone who is using them around here. I find the oven in my pressure alcohol doesn't seem to get hot enough for cooking some things properly. How is the oven in the non-pressurized for cooking? I am ok with lighting the one I have without burning the curtains (yet) but I pretty much have to light it for anyone one else on board. Got a get a better trained crew!
