I have a pretty major refit of the boat coming up in the Spring. Haul out, bottom paint, possibly topsides, hatch re-sealing, sail replacement, etc. so spending $400 on a new stove is not really an option.
I have considered just using a camping stove with the green propane bottles. When not in use I could store them in a cockpit locker, so no worries about leakage. But the camp stove I have wouldn't fit neatly into the recess where the stove is now (too big), and I do worry about propane on a boat...
If I just need to clean the valves and replace the filters, I can deal with the stove for now. New sails are more important! I just don't know how to clean the valve. Acetone? Gasoline? kerosine? pipe cleaners? I don't even know where to start...
