re jetting is the way to go. I searched for a new stove and found some that were not too expensive, but had no deck
...just an open grill
over the burner deck
. I liked the lay out of the one I had...a shipmate...They went out of business back in the '70's, so it took a while of diligent searching online and I found some parts
for the oven
but ended up modifying the jets on the top burners and adjusting the air vent to get a blue flame. It's worked gret for the past 2 years. I had no lockers...the CNG tank was a horizontal on the deck house. I made a platform aft for the propane any leakage goes over board and have a senior blow decks with a solenoid.
I helped a friend do the same on his Gulf star 37. we had to rebuild
locker as the propane tank wouldn't fit. we also put a drain in and routed it out the transom, just above the watering and a good foot below the locker sole. One of his burners was toast so we found a retro-fitted one for his shipmate.
Son't know why they went out of business. mines 40 years old and still looks great....thick good grade stainless. The retro-fitted burners aren't as robust, but still work
if you drill the jets make sure it's a clean hole and straight, other wise it won't ventury the air well and you'll get yellow in the flame, hence black pot bottoms. I've even added holes in the burner of one and enlarged the jet to make a hotter burner for stir fry and deep rapid boiling on larger pots....makes coffee water
faster too AAHHH.... by the time I have the press cleaned and filled the water
is ready ;-)
Be patient and do the research
and walk through the safety
before you start work
