re camp stove

Hi there,

I would recommend a 2 burner propane stove, something like this
Meijer: Coleman 2-Burner Propane PerfectFlow Stove
They are stable, simple, safe and easy to use. Also easy to find fuel for, around here anyway. We have had one on our boat for the last 3 years, in lieu of an aging alcohol stove. It works well and we have had no problems with things tipping over. You might be able to pick one up second hand very inexpensively. Just make sure you ventilate.......
Have fun,
Tanya

George,

Did you ever manage to get the pressure relief valve to active on your Svea? It's quite dramatic. When I was 16 or 17, I damn near burned down my dad's garage one afternoon when I was testing my stove after cleaning the jet. That was ** years ago, and I still don't have the guts to tell the old man how close his vintage Borgward Goliath came to becoming a pile of ashes.

I've used this type of stove on a boat before. They work fine. You can make yourself a little rack for the bottles and keep them where a leaky one (rare, but possible) won't fill the bilge with fumes. I saw a cool little rack for just such a purpose that was essentially a length of plastic pipe attached to the backstay. I think it held 3 or 4 bottles. The main problem with these (apart from the potential for fumes in the bilge) is that over time propane packaged this way is quite expensive; maybe twice as much as alcohol.

I totally agree tjvanginkel !
That's similar to the one I use on my Starwind 22.. i got it for about $15 at Ross or Marshalls, it works great. just use a little common sense, it's no where near as hard to use, or as dangerous as sailing a sailboat.. don't overthink it, just leave the companionway open, or use it in the cockpit. I usually put it in the cockpit just outside the companionway..just because of the heat.. Have fun and good luck on your trip !!

Leland,
The Coleman camping stoves will do in a pinch and are pretty cheap to buy compared to marine 'grade' alcohol stoves. Easy to use and the flame is pretty hot. Do try to use it in the cockpit rather then the cabin.
One thing you should keep your eye out for if you do not already have one is a kerosene/lamp oil hurricane lamp. It produces a low light that you could probably read by and costs your battery no amp hours for the long nights you are planning. Pretty romantic too!
Have fun and be safe.

Lol, I'm not going to build my own.
I don't trust my own handiwork enough xD
That 2 burner coleman deal looks like it would work well enough, a bit pricey, but it won't kill me..
I'm not cooking over a Molotov Cocktail, either..
Coleman fuel seems so expensive though..
Beats sandwiches though..

Thanks for the help guys,
I heard someone recommend a solar shower, I have two.. both seem to have too fragile of a handle to be strung up a halyard.. how do I use them when their handle stretches so badly when I tie it to anything?

Make your own alcohol stove. It's perfectly safe. Really. It is.

In 1970 a buddy and I sailed up the B.C. coast from Vancouver and got as far as Ocean Falls, about halfway to Alaska and were out for 78 days. I had an 18' sailboat with a British Seagull outboard, air mattresses on the bunk flats and a Coleman stove we used in the cockpit. We used to love it when at a dock we'd be doing the steaks and the owners of the big boats walked by and seemed a bit jealous. Didn't use it in the cabin though. It burned white gas (naptha) and was the cheapest we could find. But didn't have a shower like smack showed.
