If you use White Gas the only risk is the fire is invisible. So if your buddy starts slapping the shit out of himself NO he is not being bitten by hornets...
His arse is on fiyerrrrrr...

Actually propane is scarier than gas in many ways.
Its fumes sink and get down inside the boat.....gas fumes evaporate or rise and go away.
I have used a propane grill and white gas grill onboard several boats for years.
Most of my cooking is done on the rear of the boat in the open.
There is nothing to catch fire or place for gas fumes to build up.
Its an aluminum Kingfisher boat.
I will find an alternative.
Thanks for the responses guys.
I have no experience with gasoline powered stoves/grills/whatever but I noticed an error in your logic here. Gasoline fumes, like propane, are indeed heavier than air and will sink and accumulate in low places like the bilge or a cabin. That is why we have blowers on gas powered inboard boats - to blow the gasoline fumes out of the low spaces in the bilge.

Don't make the mistake of thinking that gas is safer than propane as far as the fumes go. It could be argued that gas is safer than propane because propane is stored under pressure and could theoretically accumulate at a faster rate with a minor leak but that's a different story altogether.

I didn't expect to raise so much anger and hatred asking a question.
I grew up with my parents using a gas stove regularly whwn we went camping.
I asked them and they no longer have it.
Both said how great it worked.
I have seen them around but not for years.
Nothing cooked on it tasted bad.
When I run out of propane a gas stove would just be nice. I cook daily on a propane grill all winter on the boat.
I don't know what everyone else does cooking on their boat, but I enjoy it.
I have made thousands of meals on boats over the years.
For months I have read threads here on THT and some are very informative and I have appreciated the knowledge shared.
But I should have just googled this and not asked obviously.
I hoped someone else had maybe done it and could share their information was all.
I see in my looking nothing specific to boats, but a couple of makers that make gas grills.
I will buy one and try it and just see how if works.
And I learned to not ask questions about things.
I will continue to read and share.. ..I won't ask for information though.
Cheers

Isn't it a shame this forum makes someone feel that way! I think it's funny how many people thought you were crazy for asking only to find out they were wrong. Kinda like 2 stroke vs. 4 stroke or cat vs. mono hull and God help you if you go farther than 10 miles out without a life raft!!

Seriously? You posted what you called a "stupid question" and now you're upset that you didn't get only buttoned down responses? Wheat and chaff my friend. Learn to separate them.

Yeah, we're just bored and having fun.
Keeps your post relevant and you have a few decent answers.

I'm a big fan of dual purpose and/or simplifying applications.

Dammn interweb, full of unpaid comedians.

I have found that many Canadians share a tendency of being thin-skinned. Not all perhaps but a majority. Wonder why?

I've also found that when you see either a Canadian flag or Power Squadron flag on a boat you better watch out and move away while keeping your video machine handy...

Similar to jet ski people coming into the ramp. You know something tragically funny is about to happen...

I thought it was a pretty good question myself, growing up we used Amoco white gas in the lanterns and not sure about the coleman cook stoves but I believe we did, but this gas we use now is a long way from from the old white gas.

If you spend the money and buy a ceramic infra-red bar b q fired by propane you will absolutely love it. Best tasting cooking ever and no carcinogens plus it's much faster than propane/flame so you don't consume so many little green tanks!

Look at Solaire Grills, they have 304 and 316 and are marine safe!

Solaire is what I use on my boat. Pretty good, but even on low it runs too hot.. May need a better regulator.

Thanks guys, I truly do appreciate the help and responses.

To those who mentioned my thin skin.
Actually I was more than happy to laugh along....problem is a few seem to just get angry.
Getting angry and saying that its stupid and such is just not funny or helpful.
By all means make jokes.

I know of gasoline powered units for regular use....I just wondered if any of the makers had any boat specific, that maybe could be hooked into a gas line and some sort of small pump to get the gas to it.
The gasoline stoves actually work well.
But they require gas going into a container and poured in the tiny tank.
With the advances today I just thought maybe a new better system was out.


Oh and for the safety concerned people I thank you for your concern....I keep fire extinguishers nearby and the little aluminum table i set my grill on is on the edge of the boat and i could push it overboard if needed.
I am not wreckless and having wild parties while i cook in a drunken stuper or anything.
Someone way back even made a comment saying nice first post.....obviously without looking to see i joined last year and have more than 1 post.
As to the comments about all the chemicals, any fuel has chemicals in it, be it your burning propane, kerosene, or whatever.
They also make diesel and other fuel stoves if anyone is interested.
My boat isn't diesel powered, so not wanting one of those.
I have 2 electric hot plates I sometimes use as well, but they require the generator be running and it can barely power both at once.
I have also used charcoal in the past, but bulky and slow to heat up and cook.
I just thought gas is quick and easy.

The BigWhit and Corndog and others...I will check into the Solaire.
Thank you very much for the advice.

Great handle....Big Twit....like a skit from Monty Python.

What's that, you say?...." Big Whit"?

Seems to me they may be the same.

And some around here get a kick out of piling on without having any relevant knowledge or experience.

For electric if anyone is interested this has worked well for me....down side is its only 1 burner and uses a lot of electricity to operate.
