Re: Do you use Oil Lamps

You are very kind to help.

The original is 5 inches tall, and I am afraid a 10 1/2 inch chimney would hit the bulkhead when the boat hobbyhorses .

I did find a 1 5/8 inch chimney, 4 1/2 inches tall on the site you linked to. I am thinking an adaptor cut from a tin or aluminum can might shim up the lacking 1/16 inch, or I can bend the little metal "fingers" that hold the chimney, toward the center. .. They are cheap at $4.5o, so I will order two of them, and see if I can make a simple adaptor ring, or circular band shim.

They appear to be the same shape as the original chimneys.

I'll post the results.

Thanks again for the help.

Bestathook, Build a wooden block, thick enough, to allow the yoke mount more room from the bulkhead. Do the same for the smoke cap.

Metaphorically right???

Or do I just have a dirty mind????

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair...
