As for propane, it can be difficult to retrofit a proper installation onto a boat that wasn't designed for it in the first place, especially for boats 30' and under. I'd strongly consider it if I lived aboard, but as a weekend warrior/daysailer, the NP alcohol works fine as long as it's used properly.
I have a pressureized stove. It works well. I did have to stop some leaks when I first got the boat. All is well now. I am going to try the Oven this weekend and see how it works.
