I've also had a couple of Origo Alchohols in the past and was satisfied but they are not gimbled and have no holder/clamps. That Taylor looks interesting being gimbled and clamped. Since we rarely cook much underway/heeled if I had to prioritize gimble or pan holder/clamps (I have both) I would choose Pan Holder/Clamps because most stove gimbals are only in one plane (more like a hinge really) for heeling and at anchor you could get "waked" fore or aft. At least if the pan is secured gimbled or not it "should" stay put.

Sailormann will become famous soon enough
Taylors stoves are works of art and they are priced accordingly - you may find some information on this site here...

Origo works fine

We love our 2 burner gimballed Origo. Easy to clean and safe. We hope to try a Dutch oven this year and make fresh rolls and bread.

You can always go to the nearest camping store and get a camping stove that runs on butane, then keep the butane canisters (about the size of a big cigar) in a bag fastened to the lifelines.
Yeah, it's not abyc certified, but what it is is a 1980 Catalina 30, and I'm doubting SailHog actually cooks his food anyway.

Thanks for all the thoughtful replies... I yanked the stove and the tank out of the boat yesterday and discovered the problem. The fuel line, which runs from the stern lazarette to the galley, has an occlusion in it, and the tank itself has a nasty little leak at the brass exit valve. I think I can solve both problems, so long as I can find a replacement fuel line with the proper fitting. I'm going to mend the valve with some plumbing thread goo that won't dissolve when in contact with denatured ethyl alcohol.

Tell me if I'm being too careful here, but I've already got a gasoline inboard on this boat, and I'm not ready to go with yet another combustible gas (propane or butane).

Anyway, thanks for all the help. You guys are the very best.

Anyone know where I might find a replacement fuel line with the proper brass fittings for an old Galley Maid alcohol stove? I'm thinking this could be hard to come by...

Just hung up the phone... The fellow said they don't carry the rubber line anymore, and suggested that I go with copper tubing. He says the fittings are readily available, although I neglected to ask him where. Copper tubing is going to be a PITA to snake through from the galley to the stern lazarette... Whataya think?
