Re: Big Stove vs. Camp Stove

Gotta be close to a record.

I bought one of those little bracket/gimballed screw bottle one burner stoves and put a mount on the pedestal with the objective of being able to make coffee while at the wheel. Boat Gimballed Stove Mini Galley
It works BUT not in a moderate wind. The wind just blows too much of the heat away. If the burner were a little closer to the bottom of anything you place in the basket, it would work better.

I DO worry about the seals on those disposable LP bottles.
