is very unpleasant.
Wallas seems to have a new type:
Wallas | Boat stoves | Boat cooking | Diesel boat stoves | Paraffin boat stoves
Which might solve the problems mentioned. Anyone tried one of these? Could be terrific if it does what it promises.
EDIT: WOW! This really looks very cool indeed:
I didn't know these existed. The flame is completely isolated from the cabin
, so no smoke. The thing they've done is to make forced air burner, like Eber and Webasto, so it vents through a very thin pipe which is not hard to run.
This may be the best cooker of all. I can see only two downsides -- (1) will put heat into the cabin (not a downside for me); and (2) the burner will need maintenance
And cost. And a hole in the deck
, but it's a small one (not like the big holes you need for the flues of normal diesel stoves/heaters).
But if you did this for the cooktop, and had an electric
convection oven/micro/grill for an oven
, then you would need much less electrical
power. And you get cabin heat in the bargain.
