Re: Kerosene, Propane, or Other for Cooking

I have used kerosene for 12 years with no problems. Downwind Marine in San Diego used to carry all of these parts as well as Aladdin lamp parts etc. I got a lifetime supply when I was there years ago. I have heard he sold out and do not know if the new owners will stock these older parts anymore. He was the place to go for anything obsolete. Ed

"We have an ooold Shipmate."
That was a good stove. Made by the Richmond Ring Company. I think their main business was making piston rings. How they got started making kerosene stoves is a mystery.

Re: Kerosene, Propane, or Other for Cooking

Contrarian alternative: electric.

Induction cooktop, combo convection oven/microwave, slow cooker, pressure cooker, toaster, coffee maker, etc. Complemented by AC/DC fridges.

It's easier for us to use the boat's diesel supply to run the genset when required, and we have the recharge batteries 2x/day anyway.

I presume some inverters would power some of that stuff, to, at least for occasional use.

Realize this may not work for many cruisers, but since we carry 520 gals of diesel... and since diesel is relatively common at fuel docks pretty much everywhere... messing around with other fuels seems onerous.

Re: Kerosene, Propane, or Other for Cooking

I converted from propane to diesel/kerosene in 2005. The stove I chose is a wallas. It requires 12vdc as it uses an eletric pump and fan. In return you get an automatic lighting stove with ceramic cooktop lsrge enough for two pans that is usabke in 5 min with NO LIGHTING. ALSO when the stainleds lid is closed (like a laptop computer) the stove becomes a clean air forced air furnace. All exhaust is vented outside so there are NO FUMES, it has run faithfully since installed.
