Re: Butane camp stove in cabin

I used a butane stove all of last season without incident. Mine puts out a lot of heat, cooking with it is a pleasure.

I store the new cylinders in my fuel locker.

I have been storing the stove with the 'in use' cylinder in the plastic case (with the cylinder unlocked); maybe I should rethink that.

Re: Butane camp stove in cabin

Seaward makes a built in and a countertop butane stove that has a thermocouple safety , more money than the regular camp stoves , but worth it for not having to worry about the flame blowing out do to a breeze blowing through the cabin!

Re: Butane camp stove in cabin

Barquito. Sorry no photos but will take some when I'm next on the boat - in the next couple of days. By the way, even though I don't have any piped gas on the boat I still installed a gas detector in the bilges. I use a bottle of propane gas for the BBQ but when in use the BBQ is mounted on the rear deck where any gas leak goes overboard. The propane bottle is also stored in the gas storage locker along with the butane cylinders and a 5 litre jerry can of outboard fuel.

Re: Butane camp stove in cabin

Re cook stoves on board. It's simple and important. If it is approved for marine use - use it - if not approved for marine use - don't bring it aboard.
That said there is another important saftey thing. Learn how to install and use it, ie. read the instructions, ( I know it injures our male egos to read instructions but grin and bear it),

I use propane on board and have proper locker with two 20lb. tanks. I also keep several 1lb. bottles in that locker for the BBQ. I put four 1lb. bottles in that locker last fall, today all four of them are empty !

I frequently see small butane and propane bottles stored in engine compartments, anchor lockers and under berths !
