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

Sounds like your thermos needs to be sent to a re-education camp. I still have a few made with glass liners, they work better than the stainless ones, until the day they go "tinkle tinkle" and go to thermoheaven. And it really makes a difference if you preheat a thermos with boiling water and let it sit for a few minutes, before putting the "payload" in. Two 12-ounce thermoses (the old ones aren't a pint, the glass liner has bulk) will of course also mean the second cup is going to be hotter than if you used one big thermos.

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.

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
Bill
