Re: Stove food
My new to me Offshore 33 Cat ketch was originally equipped with a propane stove and has two propane lockers that can store a 10# cylinder located aft. The PO converted to an alcohol stove which scares the heck out of me.
I have heard that propane can be difficult to source in the Caribbean which is where I intend to cruise.
Is there a difference between LPG and propane or are they the same, and how available is propane in the Caribbean?
Is the alcohol stove pressurized or non-pressurized? If it's the latter, it's far safer than propane/LPG. If it's the former, replace it with a non-pressrized alcohol stove; the cost of the stove seems high, until you factor in all the associated tanks/tubes/hoses/valves/solenoids/sniffers/et cetera that you'll need to install with a propane stove.
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
