Wood Stoves for Liveaboards

I was in Princess Auto (Port Coquitlam, B.C.) today & noticed that they had Great Northern wood-burning camp stoves on sale for Can$150.
I had a look on the internet & saw them selling for US$79 in some surplus stores in the USA.

While those skilled in metal work could probably build their own for less, using scrap, for many this might be an ideal cabin warmer. Just thought I'd mention this to the members, as we once lived aboard in Western Canada, for 3 years, and my wife & I tried kerosene heaters(worked best for us) and electric heaters(almost burnt our boat down a couple of times). These little stoves I saw today are only 30lbs. & could probably be rigged for easy removal for those who wished to use it as a beach barbecue in the summer.
