New boat came with Taylors heater and 030 oven and 2 burner hob, Question is do these appliances merit the praise that is heaped upon them by old sea dogs who like the ritual to get them fired up,? They are around 1600 new, would I be better off selling the unit to the higest bidder, then fitting a Gas appliance and have the convenience of instant use?
I also have the Heater as well.

Well you did ask for a topic /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

If it were mine I would try it for a full season then decide. The heater will be an asset.

When we bought Vega I was going to change the spirit stove straight away but ran out of funds,now i wouldnt choose to go back to gas.

One advantage of parrafin or spirit fuel is you know exactly how much you have left .

I reckon the cooker is safer than gas. As you probably know we have the Taylors heater on board and it is a real pain most of the time. Great when it does work. Also not great with toddler or new crew on board.(the flu is a natural grab handle!) If you are getting rid of heater let me know.

You should get rid of them, they are rubbish and of no use to anyone.

Sorry all, just a windup, I think they are great, they light up easily with a blow torch. Heater has protecting shield so you cannot use flue as grab handle. /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif
