I'm still against the gas stoves... Though I may have to buy a camping stove to replace the old alcohol stove since a burner is clogged... But I can take the small propane tank off the stove and off the boat when we are not using the stove or when we are not aboard...
I dunno, ISTM a camping stove just can't quite replace a built-in stove, and it's one more bit of clutter around the place.
My wife keeps suggesting we get a propane BBQ grill to hang off the rail, or whatever, to use in place of the alcohol stove or replacing the alcohol stove. I'm thinking a BBQ grill would be nice to put on the boat for planned raft-offs and the like, but otherwise I don't want it rattling around the place.
Pressurized flammable gas+heat+weak pipe links+spark= a flying deck...
we had a propane locker outboard of the galley, like our transient slip neighbours had, the decision to convert to propane would be a non-brainer, in my view. Easy to go outside, open the locker, and turn off the gas at the source
each time you're done with it. But we don't, adding such would be prohibitively expensive, we have absolutely no other place on the boat that would be safe to stash the propane supply, nor any place that could reasonably be made safe for same. So propane, in my mind, is out of the question for us.
