Two 12-ounce thermoses (the old ones aren't a pint, the glass liner has bulk) will of course also mean the second cup is going to be hotter than if you used one big thermos.

Dunno, maybe you just need a genuine marine-grade thermos? :-)
The one I have is an old 1 qt.Thermos brand with a s.s. liner. Maybe I'll get one with a glass liner and give it a try. I like the 2 small thermos theory as well. The little gimbaled unit works well down below, out of the wind when it's too bumpy to have anything stay on my non-gimbaled stove top.
