I found two used Sea Swing stove assemblies at a local marine store, $29 each. There was no price on them and the owner seemed to be charitable that day. They had two more on the shelf.
They look like this model:
Now the question is what stove to put in them?
I have a Butterfly kerosene stove which needs a little repair. It is the type with no burner valve, you prime it with alcohol and then pump up the pressure to start it. To shut it down you vent the pressure out of a valve on the fuel cap.
Is the type of kerosene stove with a valve on the burner better for use in a boat?
How do you prime the stove? I seem to spill alcohol every time I try to prime this thing, is there a better way than just pouring a half a shot on the top of the burner?
Anyone have a source for a primus type kerosene stove? I have seen them on ebay and I got the Butterfly from St. Paul Mercantile or somesuch.
Skylark gets splashed on Saturday, I am very excited.
