Well back in 1976 boat mfgers knew how to cook safely. My Cal's presumed original stove was a gimballed Kenyon electric
. Interesting concept
I don't really know the history
. The boat is old. Maybe the electric
stove was added later. The PO had cobbled a camp stove under the stove pan. To turn on, one had to tilt the burners high enough to reach the gas knob, or drop to yer knees, reach under the sink, over and around to access the knob.
The PO was proud of his cleverness but I can't really imagine a less handy or more dangerous setup. Comparatively, the Origo
is a wonder of modern convenience.
The thing is very well built yet so poorly designed for mounting it's almost laughable. I wish it were funny
