There a picture of a cole stove on ebay in used sailboats for sale on a Pearson 30 looks a little small but probably better than using an alcohol stove on chilly mornings. Walt Gorski, Sept.2011

cole stove

I googled "marine cole stove" and found a picture. Might need to enlarge it once you get it on your desktop:

Aren't your neighbors worried/upset re: black ash/carbon, etc.

Cole stove pic

I also could provide a picture of a cole stove if you still need it, I actually would like to buy another one if there is one available. I used it on my 30 ft islander when I brought it down from Lorain Ohio to south Florida. It worked great. Jon

joethecobbler I took a diesel heater (out of the trash on Tangier,Is.VA june07) and cut out the fire box,kept the glass door and welded a steel 3/8" fire box ,
made a stainless ash tray and cut up a couple of cast iron grates from a gas grill someone was throwing out, so I could burn anything from coal to driftwood.
went to the scrap yard bought a 12' lengt of food grade thick wall 3" tubing ($12)and made a flu. bolted the stove to the forward bulkhead w/ a 6" standoff. took out a port so I didn't have to cut a hole in the cabin top.
works great! every time I used it I would anchor next to really expensive yachts and laugh at them while they froze ! I would would say stuff like "oh, you mean your Beneteau doesn't have heat?" an then invite them aboard to thaw, they always brought good wine or booze. great investment.

Are you still looking for a picture?

I have one on my boat. In fact, I'm sitting here warming in the glow of burning fire-starter chunks at the moment. If you still want a picture, I'll bring out my camera next week.

Herreshoff01 They were made by Ratelco (sp) and are long defunct as far as I know. I see them on surpus sites (even e-bay) from time to time for short money - unlike the "shipmates" that still command big money.

Everytime I get the urge to go sold fuel (i'm a bit of as traditionalist) I read this Link - this has most of the makers I know today. The Fatsco is still one of my favorites and super cheap, but the Little Cod and halibut are even nicer. Here:
