alcohol stoves/ovens

Hello everyone, I recently became the proud owner of a 1968 Islander 29. The boat is in great shape and has what appears to be the original alcohol stove and oven. I do not have the slightest idea how to use them.. anyone know where I can find some documentation?

WELCOME aboard, tingera.

Each of the basic (Alcohol) stove designs vary a bit in how they work. What brand, or general type have you?

Origo are probably the most ubiquitous alcohol stove, in the marine market:

As far as I know most of the Islanders have Hillerange pressurized alcohol stoves. I assume that you have a tank with a pressure gauge on it and a vent. If this is the case you have to have a small pump, similar to that you can use for your bicycle. You have to pressurize the tank to approximate 10-15psi (read the gauge). Then you will open one of your burners for 2-3sec to allow for priming (a little alcohol should leak). Light it with a long reach lighter same as for your barbecue. The flame should be small not longer than 2-3". When the priming is almost finished you can slowly open the burner. You should hear a hissing sound and the burner should "fire" on all its openings with a clean blue flame. You can also find the procedure on the Internet.
Bon appetite.
Chris
