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.
