Everyone has their own preferences, but I use my non-pressurized alcohol stove daily while onboard. It is dead-nuts simple, easy to light, easy to extinguish, and it is SILENT, which is nice when you are brewing your pre-dawn coffee and do not want to wake up the rest of the crew. I find a gallon jug of alcohol will last more than a month, and it is easy to stow.
In fact I use our alcohol stove more often than I use my rail mounted propane bbq.
