Seaward Alcohol stove/oven to propane conversion

We own a Seaward Alcohol stove/oven in our Catalina 34. Has anyone converted such an oven to use Propane? I am interested to know how the conversion was accomplished. The boat no longer has an alcohol container.

Any experiences, positive or negative, are welcome.

Best Regards,

Re: Seaward Alcohol stove/oven to propane conversion

For what it's worth, I've never done the conversion you are proposing.
However, in Australia I am a licensed motor vehicle ( usually taxis) LPG (to you ..propane) installer. We convert cars from gasoline fuel to propane. Despite having plenty of qualified experience, never ever would I bother to convert an alcohol stove to propane. Not impossible, but I'd be eating and drinking cold things before I'd even think about this conversion.
Maybe in your part of the world conversion specialists exist and I hope they do.
But frankly, as already suggested, I'd somehow try to find the money for a new propane stove.
Good luck which ever way you go.

Re: Seaward Alcohol stove/oven to propane conversion

Because you are dealing with two different fuels, in two different states, you will need to gut the alcohol stove of everything, then replace it. No control, burner, nor line can be re-used. Buying all the parts would probably be more expensive than buying a new stove.
