Re: Alcohol Stove - Non-Pressurized

I had an Origo 3000 on my Catalina 27, it worked like a charm, filling the canisters was easy if you used a funnel, and much safer than trying to fill them directly from the Alcohol can. The cost of grain alcohol, however, is ridiculous - about $30 per gallon, more in some locations. By current boat has propane, a 20-pound tank that has three valves for safety, including a solenoid valve attached to the sniffer. The cost of propane is also ridiculous, but it's still a lot less than alcohol.
