Fuel Lamps & Lanterns
I'm in the process of refitting and restoring an old sailboat. My goal is to keep it as simple as possible, and therefore I've decided to have very few items on board that will require electricity from the sailboat's battery.
I would like to add a fuel burning lamp or two to the cabin. What types of lamps and fuels (oil, kerosene, etc.) are acceptable in a cabin? Coming from a camping perspective, I've always heard fuel lamps should not be used in confined areas such as a tent (or a boat cabin?). Is this true? I realize there is a fire hazard, but are there also toxic gas concerns when using a lamp in the cabin?
