Re: An old gravity fed propane furnace from camper installed on boat-good idea or bad
The size is close to a cafeteria kitchen-sized can of stewed tomatoes, but the fatsco stove bodies are made of stainless steel.
Y'know, i thought about trying to build a decent small low-buck boat woodstove that I wouldn't have to rebuild every season. But, by the time you cost out SS sheet, cut it, form it (the sheer number of blades you go through cutting stainless is damn near cost prohibitive), get a shop to weld it together, etc., you're at or above the cost of a fastco stove, without figuring in your own labour.
Now, if I already owned a tig welder and plasma cutter, then the cost and time drops enough to make it worth considering.
or I could cut down some thick wall steel tube, get it powder coated, etc., etc., ...
It's still hard to beat a Fatsco.
It's 5 o'clock somewhere:
