      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

Single burner gimbaled propane stove

Recommended Posts

Big fan of the jetboil and we have it setup on a gimbal, it works great for double handed racing but we have added a few crew and need something with more capacity would be nice to be able to do a full kettle of water in one go instead of 4-6 cycles.

There were some ideal options on the market a few years ago (like the forespar) but they have been discontinued and nowhere to be found in the secondary market.

Ideally we are looking for a gimbaled single burner propane stove capable of doing at least a ½ gallon of water at a time.

Does anyone know of a commercially available one?

If not does anyone have any experience constructing one?  Thinking a coleman stove and gimbal, but would much prefer an off the shelf solution.

Thanks

I bought a Forespar new as of 4 years ago, might check around and see if there's one on a shelf or on eBay. Good little unit, easy to use, but it'll take a while to boil 1/2 gal of water. Also limited the dia of pot that fits in the basket.

I've already had to weld my Forespar back together after someone fell on it.  Also managed to get a new knob from a now closed outdoor gear store after the old one broke.  Otherwise had to use the smallest vice grips I could find to turn it on and off.  Will keep fixing it as nothing else like it available.  BTW, you can fit a tall asparagus pot into it if looking for replacement pots.

dometic makes a gimbal mount for the Origo alcohol stoves. We used to have an Origo 2-burner on our Pearson and we loved it. 6-8 minutes to boil a quart of water.

Just bought a Maxie single -burner alcohol stove, boiled 1 litre of water in 12 mins. Our natural gas stove at home boils 1 litre in same pan, same dia burner in 8 mins. I think I can live with 50% more on the boat.
