I not have many pictures
I actually collect Candle Burners and Oil Lamps. Not have many oil lamps, but, do have a few. Also, notice how some shown here have a heat/smoke plate over the top? Very important when close to wood overhead. Here two of my favorite Glass Candle Burners, first is my best of!

Someone posted looking for one of those $200 West Marine Lanterns - just passing on info...
Attention Boaters! Den Haan Trawler Lamp - $75
I have no interest in it - just forwarding it as I remembered someone mentioning it - I have NO idea who the seller is...

What a splendid chap you are. Thanks so much for the Dietz info.
I mentioned earlier that we have a couple of hurricane lamps that we use in the cockpit but they are such rubbish that quite frankly I can't wait to bin the damn things. The wick adjustment is touch and go, sometimes works, sometimes doesn't, The attachment of the wick holder to the base is so poor that it constantly comes loose, they leak oil if they are more than half full and the cap for the tank is simply pathetic. Unfortunately they were the only ones I could find down here and I had been thinking of heading off to the local market to see if I could find a half way decent second hand one. Provided Dietz will deliver to Australia, I'm in business. For once I can be thankful for the religious nutters.
In case anyone is curious, yes I can get reasonable quality oil lamps here but they all have those super dooper mantle things on them. Great for extra light but thats not what we wanted.
Regarding candles, I agree open candles are a complete no no on a boat. You'd have to be crazy. What we had was a fully enclosed lantern that used candles. It was perfectly safe, particularly with dripless candles and hung so they couldn't overturn. Nonetheless oil is better if for no other reason than the ability to add citronella to the oil, which is our main concern.

You should find out what batteries they take and buy a big box before you go back. Batteries are expensive in Europe.

If you do want to burn a candle, I recommend this product.

|SVDistantStar||That one is about 2 years old with no leaks. Ive had a few that started leaking before and they got junked fast. For the most part its been working fine for all this time.|
