Re: Stove options

Gas on board gives me the shivers ,Ive got a two burner kerosine gimballed stove on my yacht which I prime with alcohol.There are lots of second hand ones over here,they became unpopular when gas came in.I would imagine you should be able to find one on ebay.The kero stoves take a bit to get used to but once you have sussed them out they are great they just need CLEAN fuel and need to be primed with alcohol until they are hot at least 2 minutes.

Re: Stove options

Newhall,

I also use a Coleman multifuel burner--the more advanced Exponent model. Works well. I've fashioned kind of crude gimbels for it and can use it in cockpit as well as cabin. In addition I have Origo Alcohol.

Did have the experience of the Coleman flaring up on me in cabin so bad that I impulsively threw it overboard pleased that it was simple to do that. Am on 2nd one though with the following lessened learned. Clean it at first sign of irregular flame. Start it under low pressure(3 or 4 pumps) until it has warmed up then pump to full pressure.

Re: Stove options

Alright I have decided i am going to get an older brass stove maybe try and find an old optimus aand then modify my existing stove so that i can fit the burner into the gimbals. I am then going to put a thin layer of metal behind the stove so that any accident wouldn't burn my boat down thanks for the help guys, I'll post more if i need help fitting the new stove into the gimbals. Anyone have sugestions on a specific model or brand, I have heard the optimus ones are good.

Re: Stove options

Try to get an air gap behind the metal heat shield. Metal transfers heat and that is not what you want to do here. Place spacers behind of a non flammable type or won't melt or transfer heat. Porcelain would be perfect. Or maybe a thermal blanket behind it. Fiberglass Tape Manifold Exhaust Wrap

Merrin Board-Pure Colour,High Quality Reinforced High Strength Lowes Fire Proof Insulation Board,Calcium Silicate Board behind metal would work great too.

Re: Stove options

Kerosene stoves are still available.

1-Taylor's via St Brendan's Isle, the mail forwarding folks. They will also get you the burners if you want them. It's not on their web site, call them
Mail Forwarding Services at St Brendan's Isle

2- High quality single burner camp stoves, Japanese Mansalu, and all manner of parts are available from Base Camp.
base-camp.co.uk

3- briteLyt makes kero pressure lanterns with heater and cooking attachments

Used stoves occasionally come on e-bay, or Craig's list. I bought a brand new Seward at a consignment shop for $200 and a brand new two burner unit, with two brand new spare burners for $75.

But I spent time looking.
