Re: Alcohol Stove and Heater

The comment about baking on an alcohol (or any) stovetop design is not correct. Look into the Omnia oven, a stovetop baker that works very well.

I do not think you can go too far wrong with any US name brand, even though their products may be made overseas. Jabsco, Johnson, Shurflo, West Marine should all be fine. I would look for a sale,...

Your design may be the same as my Hinterhoeller HR28, as Hinterhoeller was one of the founders of C&C and his yard built them. For me, the span of each loop was different than any prefab teak rails I...
