Lightbulb Wallas 87D Diesel Cooker/Hob

Hey all - been a while since I have been on the forum - hope everyone is doing ok!

We are in the process of restoring our Meta Joshua 40, and looking at possibly fitting a Wallas 87D gimbled oven and hob.... but I am yet to find anyone who has used one on a Sailing boat... really interested in having only one fuel to contend with - the boat isn't fitted for gas, and I dislike meths cookers.. the Wallas seems like a great (if expensive) option.

Anyone got first hand experience?? Particulary interested in the installation of the flues high enough to avoid water ingress off the deck....

Intend to do lots of cold sailing... only popping to the tropics to pass through on the way south and back north...

Looking forward to hearing from someone?

Re: Wallas 87D Diesel Cooker/Hob

Great little stove, but as it is diesel fuelled, it will require some cleaning / soot removal from time to time.
They are weak.. it takes over twice the time to heat a litre of water compared to propane.
Can be hard to install, as it needs an over deck exhaust / flue.

On the other hand, a propane stove in the arctic is a pain in the ass. The water wapour condenses on all cold surfaces, like the wheelhouse windows. A big reason why the wallas stoves are popular in small fishing boats, up north.

It's been a while since i used one, and i've never mounted one myself.

Is it possible that my sole purpose in life is to act as a warning to others?
