Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

This is by far one of the best threads I've ever had the pleasure to browse on Sailnet.

Thank you to everyone who's contributed! I'm still making a list of things I need to overhaul, replace on my own sailing vessel. I'll definitely be posting here when I finish a 'low buck' project that qualifies.

Jetboil has very little waste heat, you can hold your hand on any part of the gimbal and it's barely warm.

The stove is only mounted while in use. It stows below or in the laz in a few seconds using those two quick release mounts.

I do wonder how I'll fit it and a folding binnacle table during cruising season, but that's an issue to figure out next month.

I used it today in 20 knots of wind and it worked great. I like having a cockpit stove.

Alex,
If it stays that cool, could you make it from PVC coded for hot water?

It might be possible. I took a quick look on McMaster Carr and didn't see PVC pipe in the correct dimensions for the Jetboil pot, but maybe you could adapt something else.

When flame is involved I do feel more comfortable making it out of stainless steel, but I can say that I'm able to put my hands around any part of the cage and not have them get hot.

I've used the stove multiple times now and it's a great addition to the boat.

Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

I have a ton, and I am going through my phone right now looking at all the pictures. This one is kind of ugly, but it was less than a dollar. I had this silverware holder on the boat in a cabinet and it was kind of in the way, spilled and took up a lot of space, and there was a big blank space on the back of the cabinet door. I took care of a lot of blank space on the boat before I took it cruising. A couple pieces of shock cord from the hardware store threaded through (I keep a 10 or so feet of a few different thicknesses) and some screws that were in my random screw bucket and viola conveniently mounted silverware holder.

Nice. We did something similar but with a bamboo basket we purchased from Amazon. More than a buck but not bad.
