Catalina 30 Stove Replacement

Hey All,

The PO removed the stove and put in a worthless dorm fridge. We would like to pull the fridge and replace it with drawers or a cabinet with a non-pressure alchohol 2 burner stove on top. I have been looking around for something that would fit the bill but have yet to see anything. Any ideas?

Thanks

I have an Origo 4000 and I would recommend it. It cooks the the food about as fast as propane without all the plumbing. Mine is over 10 years old an is fine. Just be sure the canisters are cool when you fill them and fill them away from the stove so no fuel will get into the base.

Re: Catalina 30 Stove Replacement

We have an Origo two burner plus oven on Aeolus and love it. Benefits include no propane aboard, no sniffer to worry about not working, absolutely low-tech and indestructible. Drawbacks include a lower burner temperature which yields longer cooking times, and the byproducts of burning alcohol are a whole lot of H20 in the air as well as carbon monoxide.

Because we sail with kids we love that our alcohol stove is not a combustion hazard. We never worry about them messing with knobs or anything. We deal with the condensation and CO by always having the window open above the stove. But then again Aeolus is a pilothouse with great windows that open. I would be concerned about an alcohol stove in a more typical boat that lacks good ventilation. Just have to be more careful.

We cruise Aeolus heavily, about 2-3 months per year in total nights around the Salish Sea, and our Origo is one of the things we love most about the accomodations aboard the boat.

Re: Catalina 30 Stove Replacement

Not sure if your question is really about the stove or the cabinet that would be needed to replace the fridge. If the later, I doubt you will find something ready-built that will just drop in. You are going to have to build something. Not hard with veneered plywood however.

Yeah I was pretty sure the Origo was the way to go. My main concern is the cabinet, I was talking to some people at our club today and there is someone there who can probably build it for me. I am going to talk to him and see what he thinks. I was hoping there may have been something out there that could just drop in to the space.
