A Swing Stove
I had one of these on my Rob Roy 23 way back in 1996. I always wanted another. It works so well both at anchorage and especially under way.
They are scarce as "hens teeth" on the open market. I happened to run into one on Ebay and bought it immediately for the asking price of $150. Tell you the truth if they made them today, they would be more that that.
I was particularly interested to see if my pressure cooker would fit. Well it does, sort of. I may get a smaller cooker that fits in full swing mode. Pressure cookers, by-the-way are the cats meow for cooking aboard. They save a lot of gas. If you "pre" cook, that is heat it up and let it sit, they save even more.
If you ever see one of these, buy it!
