Hi:

I have an old Shipmate Kerosene stove on Oceana. The first few attempts were a disaster..flames from alcohol and billowing smoke from the kerosene. To remedy the problem I:

1. Flushed the system of old kerosene and replace with new kerosene ($15/gal!!)

2. Dismantled and cleaned the burners

With practice I've mastered the stove and when I hear a hissing after the preheat with alcohol she's ready to light up. Once the stove is on I've found the kerosene clean and very hot and easy to adjust.

Does anyone know where to buy replacement burners?

Thanks,

David

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!

See the full list here!
