Re: safe cooking
LED cabin lights is what i am going to be using. bright. long lasting. not hot. not a big energy drain. it's a win/win option.
I can't get the link to open right now, but believe I recall 12v shorts are the number one subcategory of electrical fires. Doesn't matter how hot the bulb gets. Improper installation, fusing, wire size, connectors, chafe, etc.
All I'm saying is, if you're stressed over fire hazzards, these win hands down over galley fuel. Especially on older boats that prior owners may have messed with or time may have been unkind toward.
What cooking fuel you use is up to you.
