Does anyone use their Sea-Swing cooker?
So....I needed a fourth pot to cook in, remembered that I have an old Sea-Swing cooker tucked away along with a propane bottle for it. Attached it to its mount above the galley and fired it up.
This damn thing scares me, to the point I had a fire extinguisher off the bracket and sitting next to me. Whooshhhh with flames curling up along all sides. Eventually (trying to boil water) flames started coming out where the propane bottle attaches so I shut it down and reverted to a “JetBoil” I use when hiking.
Obviously there’s a bad seal in the bottle mount. Regardless, I don’t like this thing at all. For one, the entire assembly gets hotter en hell and anything like that is just begging for 3rd degree burns when I fall into the damn thing in a seaway. It’s only logical location is above the galley sink next to the companionway (I have a “small” boat) so there is no real “safe” place to put it. The way this thing operates I wouldn’t let it out of my sight for 5 seconds, let alone “warming something up” for me while at the helm, soup, coffee, the Irish kind or otherwise.
Is this thing worth keeping and fixing? Does anyone actually use them anymore?
