Metho Burner Replacement
 
2 Attachment(s)
The old gimballed 2-burner metho stove (pics below) on our boat has been faithful for many a year but the burners are on their last legs. There are no brands or markings left on the thing - but it isn't a Maxie, which is the commonest brand around here.

Can anyone recognise the burners and tell me where I might get replacements? It's generally wayyy cheaper than the alternative.. which is a whole new stove. :(

C ..... Still have the old one we took off Raven when we went gas. Was in perfect working order and condition at the time, no use to me. Been stored on land ever since. It is a Maxi from memory. You want it ? Postage and a donation to charity.

Now .... under normal circumstances I'd say $50.00 to charity of your choice but you'll only go and give it to the church (:p :p ) or even worse the Liberal party and we can't have that now can we ? Heaven forfend.

How about $50.00 to the RSPCA ?

I'm tempted to say the Greens but that would rankle wouldn't it ? :eek: eek:

Cheers mate

Andrew

ps - If you want it give me a call at the office. I could ship it off Tuesday.

pps - Get it up and running on board before parting with the dosh.

So, what worthy charity gets the "dosh"?
Urban Dictionary: dosh

:rolleyes:

Metho = alcohol, sounds like.

International sailing boards are fun!:cool:
We almost need an English to English translator...
:laugher

Best of luck on the stove, whatever it burns......

Cheers,
LB

LB ... nope .... what you need is an American to Strine translator but you are on the money. Metho aka Methylated Spirits is what you lot call Alcohol. Personally I prefer a nice cold beer or a glass of vino but then you Americans do eat and drink the strangest things. :eek::eek:

C ... pleasure doing business with you ... :)

Wouldn't that be a Murkin to Strine translator? You'd only need the English translation if the Brits are involved, I should think. :D

You know it never occured to me for a moment that "metho" wouldn't be easily translated outside the Commonwealth.. and that probably explains why I get so few hits in various search engines for spares!! :o Never mind, problem sorted anyways - with profuse thanks to a certain Wombat and his lady. :)

Funny.. we don't have so many problems understanding the Brits, but, yes, Murkin is an entirely different problem.

And, for all the Murkins out there, a "drongo" is .......?? :eek: :laugher

LOL! I have learned a bit of Strine and know what a Drongo is.

On my Facebook page I claim to speak both Murkin and British English. We truly are two (no, three!) countries divided by a common language.
