Only once have I actually seen someone use their galley for cooking. Most of the time when at a raft up, the sub 30 footers all whip out their cheap camping stoves and start cooking in the cockpit. In my area it's really easy to find the propane bottles, so that's what I went with. I do plan on keeping them in a PVC tube lashed to the pushpit, as I don't like that they tend to leak after initially being open.

Huh, I must be weird (a safe bet, if ever there was one). I use my flush-mounted Origo on my Cal 2-27 all the time.

It's in the lazerette?
Oh, never mind...
I didn't REALLY need it anyway.

Nope.

It be an Origo 2000 just like this one, except with potholders (and spilled coffee, a bit of dried up minestrone, some unidentifiable crusty stuff, etc., etc., etc).

In my mis-guided youth we sailed a late 50's ear 26' Thunderbird on San Francisco Bay and used our camping gear aboard. Trying to cook on a primus stove aboard was a real adventure. Ultimately we found a Sea Swing Stove with mounting brackets both inside and in the cockpit of the boat. They are still available but improved by using propane rather than pressurized "white gas" as in the old daze.




See Stove - Mini Galley 2000 - Gimbaled - Stainless Steel* - *Sea Swing Stoves* - *Ranges & Stoves* - *Galley, Stoves & Barbeques* - *Downwind Marine Inc

"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."

The seacook has been discontinued I think.. I have an old forespar mini-cook, which is great in that it swings from a single point attachment, and the gimbals work really well, the downside is that it is tiny.. mine has a teapot that boils just enough water for 2 cups of tea or instant coffee.. If I were buying a new one I would probably go with the Kenyon. Butane burns much hotter than alcohol, so your coffee (soup, whatever) will be ready sooner.

A previous owner of my boat did something that I thought was rather clever. He mounted the bracket for the stove on one of the hatchboards. With the hatchboard in correctly, the stove would swing under the open companionway hatch.. but you could just reverse the hatchboard and have it in the cockpit.
