Diesel Stoves

My first posting! Happy Thanksgiving!
I''m considering replacing my gas cooker with a diesel product. Many diesel stoves are free standing and therefore do not gimbal. Anyone any experience of using such non-gimbaling stoves? In particular how practical are they for offshore cruising?

Apart from cooker safety, a number of diesel stoves also claim to be effective space and water heaters. Are these multi-purpose stoves as good as is claimed?
Thanks for any advice.

San, welcome to the group.

If you can borrow a copy of After 50,000 Miles by Hal Roth, you''ll find his comments on diesel stoves to be helpful, cautionary, and relevant to your query. You might also want to visit the BB at the Pacific Northwest Sailing website (check Google; sorry I can''t offer you the URL) as that''s where these stoves are used, in practice.

Jack, Thanks for the welcome and response. I''m in UK and pleased to have got a copy of Hal Roth''s book lined up for collection on Tues next. No luck yet with the forum website but am continuing to search. Cheers!

San, try this for the Northwest Boating website: www.nwboating.net

Good luck to you; will we be seeing any diesel stoves at the London show this January?

Great Jack! Worked a treat. Read your thread on heaters. Many common issues with cookers. The Wallis diesel version looks to be the one to fit without tearing the boat apart though it doesn''t deliver the three heating sources I want - don''t want three chimneys poking out the coachroof!!
Not sure what will be at the Boat Show. Hope to find out tomorrow. I''ve seen Taylors heaters in the past but can''t recall any stoves - but haven''t been looking for them. Thanks again for your interest. The ''Boards not exactly a hive of activity.

You going to the Boat Show Jack? Think it was you who posted about the ''Show last year? Tried to find your boat without success to have a chat but ran out of time.

San, yes we hope to be at the London show again this January - we''re back at St. Kat''s in January.

If you were looking for a cabin heater, I would recommend you look at the line Force 10 just purchased from another Canadian outfit. Forget the brand name but it''s a good unit and quite reasonable. If it''s a diesel cooker you want...well, that''s a much smaller market and so your choices will be slim and expensive.
