That stupid metal pipe coming out the side of my camp stove

So, I know a lot of people on here just use a regular camping stove and those small propane canisters. I think it's a great idea because I am also a cheapskate. The problem is that I bought a Coleman and it has a rigid metal pipe coming out of the side, with a regulator on the end that you screw the propane canister onto. It is incredibly inconvenient on a small boat to have to find a place for the stove with that thing coming off the side. Is there any way to connect a flexible line instead of the metal pipe? If so, do you need to add some kind of regulator to replace the one on the end of the pipe that you would no longer be using?

By the way... do you guys think it's crazy to use this thing in the cabin? Don't answer this last part unless you have one.

Thanks

The product you linked to will not work for a stove and a canister. It lacks a regulator.

OK, but if the canister screws into the regulator at the end of the "pipe" as he calls it, and you simply insert the tube in between.........................

Get plank. Drill peg holes in plank. Place plank across cockpit. Place Coleman between plank pegs. Lash bottle to plank. Use more pegs if necessary.

Cook under bimini. Mmm. Food.

I use one, but never in the cabin, always in the cockpit.

Most propane suppliers will sell an extension hose that has the proper fittings for using the propane cannister off the stove.

I actually already have one of those flexible hoses. Yes, the flexible hose will attach to the regulator and then you could attach the canister to the hose. The real point of the question is that I want to get rid of the pipe with the regulator on it because it annoyingly sticks out to the side and prevents the stove from fitting very many places. I thought maybe someone knew of a flexible hose with a built in regulator or some type of DIY method of working around that annoying fitting. I just thought maybe someone had thought of a slick workaround (and lived to tell about it).

That plank idea wouldn't be too bad. At least it would be easier to move the thing around.

Here's an attempt at attaching a picture of the stove:

From the website,

8' High Pressure Extension Hose, Attaches To Distribution Tree, Propane Tree Or Bulk Adaptor For Use With Regulated Propane Appliances.

This hose does not have a regulator and does not have the right connections to attach to the regulator the stove uses. This hose is for attaching a coleman-type stove to a bulk tank with a regulator.

I guess you could just cut the metal tube after the regulator and insert a auto fuel line with clamps and if you liked the way that worked go to a hose making place and have them make you up something.

I dont cook in the cabin because of the grease and moisture. I find it is much easier to hose down the cockpit.

I use a lot of the small bottles for heating, lighting, and cooking. I borrowed an 8 bottle carrier (coke) that keeps the bottles from rattling.
