Subject: Oven Swap

Hello All,

I am a new Mariner M-32 owner and even more new to this forum. I bought "Kinkie Two" (soon to be Ashlinka) from a wonderful couple while I was on mid-tour leave from Iraq. Now I'm here in Iraq dreaming up all the projects, upgrades, and adventures as could be expected. I am entertaining the idea of swapping out the gimbaled three burner propane stove/oven with Navigator Stove Work's "Halibut" http://www.marinestove.com/halibutinfo.htm wood burning oven. My problem is that I don't have any measurements of the space where I need the stove to fit. If someone could look at the measurements required from the link provided and compare them to the space I might have, I would be most appreciative. Thank you for any input that may come. I can provide photos of my boat's oven upon request. I don't yet know how to ad them to this post. Can't wait to go sailing!

[> measurements -- Randall, Murre, M31, - Friday - 06/13/08 - 10:40am

Hey Craig,

Actually, I think the measurements are available on the Mariner Owner's site here:


But the numbers on the bottom layout drawing are so tiny as to be mostly unreadable.

I enlarged the photo in another app and think the stove space measurements read 27 1/2" wide by 35" deep, but could be wrong.

I'm headed to Murre today/tomorrow and will try to measure for you to confirm.

Man, that's a whopper of a stove you're considering. It's a beauty, but looks like it weighs 50 tons. Assuming it's cast as one unit, the other measurements to consider are those of the companionway hatch. Would it fit through?

[> Will it fit?...hhmmmm -- Craig Parker, - Friday - 06/13/08 - 11:18am

Randall thank you for your fast reply. I hope it will fit through the companion way and I hadn't thought of that ...Yikes! It should I'm guessing. The stove dimensions are posted below directly copied and pasted from the website.

- Dimensions: 20.75 Wide x 16 Deep. (53 x 41Cm)
15.5 to top of cook surface with legs.
Legs are 3 High.
18.5 to top of cast bronze sea rail.
- Oven: 9 x 9 x 8" ( 23 x 23 x 20 Cm)
- Firebox: 11 x 5 x 6" ( 28 x 13 x 15 Cm)
- Weight: 175 Lbs. (75 Kg)

Thanks again,

Well, its not looking to good for me. At least not without some cabinetry cutaway. I need to have the extra room for the feet tiedowns and the heat shielding. Nothing is easy, is it? I am confident that the companionway will not be an issue. Now I just need to decide if I'm willing to tackle such an event. I like the stove too much to give up, and with life plans that will put me up north, it kinda makes sense. The firebox we have on the port bulkhead is nice to take the chill off but my plans require a full on heater. (of course, we can always justify a true "want")

HALIBUT Platform Size Minimums:
26 Wide - Minimum.
( leaves 2 gap between stove & shielding)

18 Deep - Minimum.
( leaves 1 gap between stove & shielding)

NOTE: dimensions take L & R and Rear 1 shielding into consideration plus an
additional 2 each side to access turnbuckle hold-downs.

Here you go.

22 1/4" wide x 25 1/2" deep (at height of counter top) x 23" tall.

I think you're OK.

And I totally forgot to measure the companionway hatch. Will try to get that tomorrow.

[> [> companion way hatch -- Randall, - Saturday - 06/14/08 - 9:19pm

23" wide.

You're good to go. Please send in photos of the install, when you get to it.

But tell me, as cool as the halibut stove is, what do you do when all you want is a cup of coffee?

Good luck!

[> Earned Coffee -- Parker, - Saturday - 06/14/08 - 11:18pm

I will gladly post the post-instal photos (if I make it that far). I need to get out of Iraq first. I am expecting that if I move forward with this project it won't be until late winter or early spring.

As for the coffee...lol...this was discussed on my end... there are optional drop-in alcohol burners that will help. But I have tried to boil/heat water with an old alcohol stove once; the wood fire might be quicker. Electricity would always be a boring back-up.

-Solar and wind generators are a project high on my list also research is underway.
