Rail-mounted incinerator ?

Mods, please feel free to move this if needed. I didn't see a better sub-forum.

We're back in La Paz (Mx) after four weeks up in the sea and it was great (despite disasters).

Garbage was a big issue, just as it was as we sailed from San Francisco down to Cabo San Lucas. The claim that "you carried it out there so it will still fit when you carry it back in" is just BS. You simply don't put empty cans and wrappers back in with unopened goods, you need additional "segregated" storage and you run out of space after a while.

We know many cruisers take their burnables ashore and burn them while having bonfires or cookouts on the beach. We (and others) also pay the locals to take the garbage ashore and then we watch them burn it there.

So, what I'd like to do is have some of the local craftsmen build a small (like very small) SS incinerator that we can hang off the stern pulpit, just like the BBQ. The idea would be to use it to burn paper waste at least and maybe some plastics, a central burning chamber and then maybe one or two enclosing cylinders to regulate air and ash flow.

I'm sure it is not an original idea and I'm interested in finding out if anyone has done anything like this already ?

There is an older thread.

Incinerator for Garbage

My little experiment is in note 33.
