Re: Big Stove vs. Camp Stove

If you are looking to just make coffee.... look at Jetboil, it's a canister based camping stove. They boil fast and have accessories like a french press and a hanging platform so you can be safe as well. I've had mine for over 8 years of camping from Newfoundland to Key West. I'm not sure if the gas is different from the refillable propane tanks or not, but all the camping stoves do say use in a well ventilated area, so be safe and not unconscious....

Hope that helps a little

Dunno, maybe you just need a genuine marine-grade thermos? :-)
The one I have is an old 1 qt.Thermos brand with a s.s. liner. Maybe I'll get one with a glass liner and give it a try. I like the 2 small thermos theory as well. The little gimbaled unit works well down below, out of the wind when it's too bumpy to have anything stay on my non-gimbaled stove top.

Camping stoves designed for serious winter use (i.e. in high wind and cold) typically come with a windscreen. Some have one designed into the fit of the cook and burner. You could probably retrofit one by placing a large can (tomato juice?) around the two. Cut both ends off the can, obviously.A couple of good magnets to hold it in place, or a clip or some kind.

But if the NYPD Harbor Patrol boards you and finds out, not only is your thermos missing, but you've been making fresh coffee WITHOUT DONUTS..."Boy, you're going to be in a lot of trouble, boy."
I always try to keep donuts handy for LE and some chemical-free seaweed soup for the environmental police. The thermos just doesn't keep coffee hot for very long and it ain't like a fresh cup.

Re: Big Stove vs. Camp Stove

Gotta be close to a record.

I bought one of those little bracket/gimballed screw bottle one burner stoves and put a mount on the pedestal with the objective of being able to make coffee while at the wheel. Boat Gimballed Stove Mini Galley
It works BUT not in a moderate wind. The wind just blows too much of the heat away. If the burner were a little closer to the bottom of anything you place in the basket, it would work better.

I DO worry about the seals on those disposable LP bottles.

The original post was 2004.

Is this a record?

Re: Big Stove vs. Camp Stove

My only extra concern would be that the camping stove is usually using the throw-away bottles, which just use a rubber ball to seal the gas in. That valve is prone to leaking, so you want to pay extra attention to storage and ventilation, in case it is leaking propane while not connected.

But in use? Same monoxide issues, same burner, all about same-same.

Re: Big Stove vs. Camp Stove

Is there any more concern with ventilation using a propane camp stove vs. a propane stove intalled in the boat?
