Re: Looking for shipmate stove instructions

Shipmates are great stoves better than anything made today, unfortunately they are long out of business. The best source of info and parts on Shipmate stoves is John at He has parts, instructions etc and can rebuild your stove if needed. Check out his ebay store "gearbusters" and and if you dont see what you need, contact him directly. I can highly recomend him, he helped me get my Shipmate running perfectly.

Re: Looking for shipmate stove instructions

I have tried the email above but it was kicked back anyhow, It seems I have the 2 burner version (882?) and the oven is pretty much the same burner but inside the oven box, but no thermostat just a thermometer in the oven door. I have connected it all and I'm finding gas leaks where the control valve/needle enters into the burner. Can anyone shed some light on how to fix this. Is there a gasket that needs replacing? I have attached 1 pic showing the control knob/needle and burner.

Re: Looking for shipmate stove instructions

Gearbusters guy is John, a real stove guru. He was working at Sailorman in ft. Lauderdale. Nice guy, who had various parts and experience with all manner of marine stoves. Shipmate was his favorite. He said it was the best, well built stove. Anyway, he was tiring of the work and had limited his work on stoves. My info is about two years old.

Good luck
