Dwight, do you really want to know?

I think I really want to know. Why are you asking me if I really want to know? What's going on here? Is this an intervention of some sort?

You have beautiful young ladies on board. You also have a pressurize stove with a leaking valve. I would throw the S. O. B overboard and go with a non-pressurized stove for the sake of the kids.

I dislike pressurized stoves (flare ups).

Mike,
The leak is in the tank, which is far removed from the stove and flame. Can't you put a alcohol fire out with a glass of water? That was my understanding.

The non pressurized stoves can't flare. The Origo is as idiot proof as can be. I am sure you could put one out with a large glass of water but the knob on the front of the stove moves a plate that slides over the burner and smothers the flame.

If a pressurized stove flares, what happens is more fuel under pressure passes out the metering valve in a mist and you have 3 or 4 foot flames. You are not going to put it out until you get the fuel turned off.

Hawg, I don't mean to scare you, but I have seen a pressurized alcohol stove flare up years ago. The boat owner had to replace the cabin liner and trim panels around the stove. I just don't like them! and I really don't like them around Kids.

Ah, I see what you're saying. Thanks for the explanation, Cap'n.

I have to tell you... I pulled that beast out, and it must weigh 65 or 70 pounds. And that's without the tank. They could not have made it heavier. Thanks again, Mike.

I'd second what Bubb said... pressurized alcohol stoves are a serious danger. BTW, water is not recommended as a fire extinguishing medium for alcohol fires, unless it is heavy water spray, since alcohol can burn at relatively dilute (40% by volume) levels. What can happen with an alcohol fire that you try dumping a bucket of water on is that the alcohol dilutes a bit and continues burning where ever it ends up... often burning in the bilges. With the lower amount of alcohol available to the non-pressurized stoves, you're a lot safer.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I gave you the link to a perfect solution. Now you're talking about patching a fuel leak with bubble gum or something. [Grabs Hog by shoulders, shakes violently] What's gotten into you, man?

P.S. I like Bubb's advice on the alcohol. If that's your fuel of choice, non-pressurized is the better approach.

P.P.S. Sounds like the old stove would make a good kellet.

P.P.P.S. Has it ben warm enough down there to work on boats? 5 degrees F this morning here in Chesapeake country. I think I'll skip the trip to the boat this weekend.

Unless you can find the necessary parts and repair/replace the line from the tank correctly, either replace your stove with a non-pressurized alcohol stove or a propane stove. A new propane installation is going to be lot of work and cost you several times what a drop-in Origo will. Depends on how much cruising you do and how much you use the stove if the extra work and cost is worth it.
