G'day all and Happy New years
I'm still in the refit
effort of our Cape Dory
31 and one of the issues is the Kenyon gimballed pressure kerosene 2 burner stove/oven that's currently installed. I removed the whole thing last summer, hauled it home and went through it then re installed. Bottom line I do not like the resulting flames in the start up process. Above the stove there was ample evidence of past events
with soot and blistering. I installed an aluminum
and insulated heat dissipation plate to prevent further damage but still get back to my dislike of the kerosene process.
We bought a 2 burner Force 10 stove which I've been fabricating gimalling for but I really like the present Kenyon installation
and the stove/oven itself is very nice. With the ABYC standards in mind re safety
I've been looking for a way to convert to Propane
and the closest I've come to is a Camp Chef
using it's components. Seems to have what's necessary.
Does anyone know of conversions that have been done and information I can be pointed to?
We also recently purchased a Magma BBQ for later plumbing
into the propane
but that's down the road during bottle install etc.
