Mini Propane Burners?

Does anyone know of a very small one or two burner propane stove? We are currently selling our forespar gimbaled stove and cook set. It just seemed impractical. We would like something that actually sits flat on a surface and can take a regular sized pot or pan. I am not interested in any butane or white gas stoves.

I just bought a Coleman propane camp stove for my boats. Built a low box that the stove sits in, use the bottles of gas, and it works fine for me. Go to the local camping supplier and have a look at what they offer, there are several makers available. Cheaper than a marine stove and if they don't last as long, who cares. I think I paid $79 dollars for mine. If I get a couple years out of that Im ahead of the game. By the time I get to spending the amount needed to buy a proper marine stove the marine stove will be obsolete anyway and hard to get parts for.

There are portable propane fired camping stoves. Coleman makes a two burner I believe. They utilize the small disposable propane bottles, but I think there are adapters available to use the larger tanks. Check a sporting goods/camping store.

Yes! Just like that only I need to pay about 1/5th that price. That thing is pretty sweet though.
