Re: Stove replacement...

I don't suppose you have the kerosene burners still? I need a couple with bases.

richarddspano On my 1984 Catalina-30 I have the exact OEM 2 burner alcohol stove with OVEN, works fine but I am removing it, if you or anyone else is interested. I am adding a second 30 amp circuit and a 10way electric oven and microwave, as we spend considerabley more time overnighting where there is shore power, and for those few times a year where we anchor out, we barbeque on the rail. A micro wave and the stove/oven came from Ginny's, was inexpensive, safe to use and they fit perfectly.

SEMIJim An Origo unpressurized alcohol stove is the way we plan on going when we replace our pressurized alcohol stove, some day.

I'm yanking the Galley Maid beast out of there and replacing with an unpressurized Origo. My waterline should go down about six inches once that's done.

Thanks again for the thoughtful replies. Good to know I won't be sailing about in a bomb. My kids want to thank you all for keeping them out of the HHI Hospital's Burn Ward...
You have done a good thing for the kids.
You mean your water line should come up.(keep drinking the beer )

JimsCAL Unless you can find the necessary parts and repair/replace the line from the tank correctly, either replace your stove with a non-pressurized alcohol stove or a propane stove. A new propane installation is going to be lot of work and cost you several times what a drop-in Origo will. Depends on how much cruising you do and how much you use the stove if the extra work and cost is worth it.

I gave you the link to a perfect solution. Now you're talking about patching a fuel leak with bubble gum or something. [Grabs Hog by shoulders, shakes violently] What's gotten into you, man?

P.S. I like Bubb's advice on the alcohol. If that's your fuel of choice, non-pressurized is the better approach.

P.P.S. Sounds like the old stove would make a good kellet.

P.P.P.S. Has it ben warm enough down there to work on boats? 5 degrees F this morning here in Chesapeake country. I think I'll skip the trip to the boat this weekend.

sailingdog I'd second what Bubb said... pressurized alcohol stoves are a serious danger. BTW, water is not recommended as a fire extinguishing medium for alcohol fires, unless it is heavy water spray, since alcohol can burn at relatively dilute (40% by volume) levels. What can happen with an alcohol fire that you try dumping a bucket of water on is that the alcohol dilutes a bit and continues burning where ever it ends up... often burning in the bilges. With the lower amount of alcohol available to the non-pressurized stoves, you're a lot safer.

sailhog Ah, I see what you're saying. Thanks for the explanation, Cap'n.

I have to tell you... I pulled that beast out, and it must weigh 65 or 70 pounds. And that's without the tank. They could not have made it heavier. Thanks again, Mike.
