Stove replacement...

I'm looking to replace the kerosene/alcohol stove in my 1980 Catalina 30. Ideally, what I'd like is a simple gimballed two-burner that runs on kerosene, but I haven't found anything of the sort available. I'm not crazy about butane canisters, and I don't have space for a proper propane locker. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

You could convert your existing stove to propane and hang a small propane tank off your pushpit. At least that's what I did with one of our boats with an alcohol stove and another boat with a kerosene stove. Propane is sure handy. The wife always wondered why I stood up on the bow each time she lit it though.

Hawg,

Check out an unpressurized alcohol stove, I have one and it works great.

Hawg, When we ordered our new boat in 1999 we had the propane stove deleted. My wife is night supervisor of a burn center here and she did not want propane on board.

We went the non-pressurized alcohol stove a ORIGO 2 burner and have been very happy with it. With a rail mounted BBQ also we cook anything we wish.

I haven't seen a kerosene boat stove for years. you may want to check out camping gear.

I'm not trying to hijack so I'll keep this brief, but I've been thinking about stoves recently as well. I don't have any experience with them, but I'm thinking about a diesel, specifically a Dickie Bering.

Have you ruled out diesel ? If so, why ? (besides the smell,lol)

Taylors 028

We had the Taylor-030 (stove w/oven) on our Dana 24 and it was a very nice piece of handiwork. I prefer propane, but if kerosene is what you want, this is the way to go.

(Note paraffin = kerosene)

Is rebuilding the old one out of the question?

I'll second the Origo. An added advantage is since it uses denatured alcohol, you can buy fuel anywhere that sells painting supplies.

I'll second that re Taylor. I had one on the previous boat 25 years ago and loved it. Have propane now, but if I had to replace I'd consider the Taylor
