We went force 10 on Raven (two burner). Good stove. Quite happy except that if the gimble is unlocked (i.e. swinging) the oven latch is clumsy to operate. The idea of the door going under the stove when open is a nice touch.

Probably go three burner on the new boat as we have the room.

Ref the thing about kero stove not balancing, we had the same problem on Raven. If your stove is of the same design as ours with the tank at the back there is no solution. It will be level only when you have the perfect amount of fuel in the tank. We solved the problem by throwing the bloody thing away. Horrible damn things.

Have to put in a pointless plug for Origo alcohol. Low tech, unbreakable, unexplodable, reliable, affordable, available and works fine. For boiling water it is not noticeably different from a home stove. Baking does take a bit longer to come to temperature, but I'll live with that.

I tell you, having had a propane stove on an Ericson I owned, my peace of mind with an alcohol stove is priceless. We have two small kids, not to mention tons of sailing guests, and I never have to worry whether the propane sniffer is broken, the stove was turned on, a hose is leaking, and so forth.

If I replaced my stove today, I'd buy another Origo, but since they never wear out, I won't have to do that!!!!! BTW, I'm not a true Luddite. Love technology, so long as it truly makes more sense. Otherwise, I prefer to keep it simple, and fixable, and reliable, and available, and unexplodable, and low tech

Ooh, don't even bother to shoot me down, as I know already I am in the minority.
