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.
