Mini-galley

Does anyone have opinions on the relative merits of the Forespar mini-galley versus the Kuuma (formerly Force 10 I believe) Seacook stove? The manufacturers web-sites are less than illuminating.

Practical Sailor compared this in the last six months, including the Origo alcohol type. I don't have the issue at hand, but I know it was July 2006. They liked the Force 10 Seacook the best, but there were caveats. I am thinking of that model just to brew coffee or soup in the pilothouse, actually, as it makes more sense than firing up the stove in the galley and there's far less space to traverse with hot liquids. Lastly, the small amount of warmth given off might be enough to unfog the windscreens and cheer up the skipper.

You're right about the web sites but the Mini-Galley looks as if it has more secure pot holders. Could be wrong, just the way it looks. Force 10 is good gear though.

ps - Valiente, Gas cookers don't work real well as heaters. We had a gas heater on old boat and it was rubbish. Unless you sat on top of the bloody thing it didn't seem to heat anything at all. Probably fog up yur windows more than ever as well.

Thanks you old socialist. I ordered the Mini-Galley for just that reason.

I know. I'm thinking it's just a side benefit. For serious heating, I'd have a Dickinson diesel heater in the main cabin. I was thinking of something I could mount in the pilothouse to keep coffee or soup warm. I'm still reviewing either the Force 10 or the Forespar.
