Re: What are essential foods to bring?

I may have missed it but are you preparing for a trip from Seattle to SF in an O'day 28 or a Cape Dory 28?

Re: What are essential foods to bring?

The whole cut for the stove is 20x12.5 or it looks like the outline for where the stove took up was 22x13.5. Are those about right?

I could do an Origo, are the 4100 and 3000 you jus ordered the same size? I would be really nice to just be able to push it in and go. Its really the only eyesore on the boat. You've convinced me, I need a stove, and not just a camp stove.

The manga grill was a good addition. A real galley in here would be nice. I don't have saltwater for my sink, I will have to be careful about that, for washing things. It's freshwater only, at least as far as I have discovered. I almost thought I found a now to turn but it was just to switch tanks, there are two freshwater tanks.

The inlet is literally sitting next to the raw water intake for my engine.

Lol, neither! You got one of the boats right though. (The better one). I already came from Seattle. You must have looked up my old posts from last year.

It is a kid's game where a message is whispered to one person and they pass it on. After several repetitions the information is generally absolutely nothing like the original .

This thread is a little like that. We now have you provisioning for a trip from Seattle in an O'Day. Hang around a bit longer and you will be on Cape Arrow instead of a Cape Dory and leaving for PNG next week .

The Origo 4100 would be an excellent choice...and it will fit your hole. Actually the 4100 will fit the hole left by most of the old "kenyon" and "princess" stoves.

The Origo 3000 is the same two burner stove as the 4100, but in a surface mount instead of drop in.

I had an Origo 4100 on several of my boats, and I keep an Origo 1500 around as a backup, for camping, or to cook on the dock once in a while.

I tried a backpack type stove on board when I was young and foolish. A couple of flare-ups, and it was evicted from the boat.

If price is an issue, look on ebay for new and used. I bought a brand new 1500 for less than half the price of new (including shipping). Or buy it in Canada for a 25% discount from the exchange rate.

Replace the Origo with an Origo, there's a reason the owner took the old one- they're awesome.

I didn't cook on my Origo 5100 last night (wife's away visiting family for a couple of weeks so I ate chips and salami and beer) but I had it on. Outside temperature was 6 Celsius (maybe 40 degrees US),windy and rainy. My Origo and Den Haan Lamp had the cabin temperature up to 24 Celsius (high 70's), I was sitting at my table with no shirt on, just shorts and slippers.

I second the motion...they are awesome. Here in canada, they are sold under the name "cookmate", but its the same stove from the same factory.

Re: What are essential foods to bring?

Don, we also need to be realistic. We cook on gas and always have.; and as far as I can recall every boat we have met uses gas to cook on. It is safe if used sensibly. As for not cooking certain foods 'cos they use too much fuel......
Pasta does not take long to cook so I am not sure how or why you labelled it thus. At the end of the day we are not trying to just survive but to also live - and that includes eating for enjoyment, not just to get through the next 24 hours.
We have three 12kg gas cylinders and these last us around six months including baking, and that is for a large family.
We also have a barbeque (braai) that has an independent gas supply - we gave up on charcoal long ago - and the barbeque gets used a lot. We often use it for breakfast as well as dinner and the kids rustle up some good food using it as well.

I read a lot about Origo cookers and hear good things about them but what about fuel availability globally?

We sometimes have to refill our gas cylinders ourselves but we have always been able to obtain a refill whereever we have been and its never been expensive or difficult (except when the the gas depot blew apart in Dar es Salaam many years ago but we had recently refilled our cylinders when that happened).

On board we also keep a Coleman duel fuel cooker that goes to the shore with us, travels inland with us and also serves as an alternative cooker if required - just in case the gas should ever run out.

I posted on another thread that I really like white onions in lime juice as a topping or marinade and fresh onions and limes last for a while. In fact there are other salsa recipes that last a while. I hear tequila makes a good preservative (at least for worms?). I think you can eat well without refrigeration or using too much fuel.

Re: What are essential foods to bring?

Fuel availability world wide for Origo is excellent. They'll burn grain or wood alchohol, grain is better, but either fuel is available in every country on earth I suspect.

Re: What are essential foods to bring?

This is my doubt - I have not needed the fuel but did meet the Pardeys in Knysna many years ago and they carried a large fuel supply - I believe they used something similar ( however, I might be recollecting incorrectly ) - its just that I have never noted such fuel being advertised in the places that we travel. Also, in places like Malaysia or whilst sailing the Red Sea I wonder what the availability is? Or in smaller communities in the South Pacific? I have never noted it for sale anywhere in the Indian Ocean.

I am curious as to the actual real availability and viability. I really do not know enough about the subject. How economical is it and what is the measure of judging/evaluating economy? If its a question of carrying 50 litres of fuel then its no more weight than carrying 3x 12kg gas cylinders and it becomes a potential fuel source IF the availability is really available on a widespread basis.
My doubts include why are these stoves not more globally used if they are so good?
I'm not being critical or negative; I just would like to understand more. Thanks.

The 4100 is the one that should just drop into the hole you already have as I believe that is what was there previously. The cutout dimensions listed for the 4100 on their website is 22.63 x 12.81". That's actually a little wider than what you say your cutout measures.

The 3000 is a totally different stove and either sits on top of the counter or mounts in gimbals. When mounted in gimbals there is a "dropped down" position so that it can also sit flush on the counter. Panope has posted some nice pictures of their set up with their 3000 in gimbals, but your galley would need way too much modification for that. You could close up the hole in your counter and use it on top, but it would probably be too high and would block your access to the dish locker behind it. All in all I would say the counter drop in model would be your best choice.
