Camping stoves designed for serious winter use (i.e. in high wind and cold) typically come with a windscreen. Some have one designed into the fit of the cook and burner. You could probably retrofit one by placing a large can (tomato juice?) around the two. Cut both ends off the can, obviously.A couple of good magnets to hold it in place, or a clip or some kind.

But if the NYPD Harbor Patrol boards you and finds out, not only is your thermos missing, but you've been making fresh coffee WITHOUT DONUTS..."Boy, you're going to be in a lot of trouble, boy."
I always try to keep donuts handy for LE and some chemical-free seaweed soup for the environmental police. The thermos just doesn't keep coffee hot for very long and it ain't like a fresh cup.
