They throw up high flames when they are priming, flames that are likely to catch curtains over your stove area on fire.

White gas is highly refined gasoline, and not something that I want to carry a lot of on my boat, especially inside the cabin.

Alcohol stoves (like the Origo) are a lot simpler, effective, and safer.
