Taylor’s paraffin heater & cooker

HIR 3 will get new Taylor’s paraffin cooker and heater…

The old gas stove that was on board HIR was full of rust and it was beyond repair, so I had to buy a new one. Also, my big concern in heating on board, so I have been looking around and searching the internet for best options. My big issue is that I don’t want a lot of electric appliances on the boat, so the only options were gas and paraffin.IMG_4796I found Taylor’s paraffin heater 079K that I liked and it seems that the same unit was on the boat originally. The only problem was the price. 1.600 Euro for a heater was definitely too much for me… until I found one offer on ebay. I was bidding for more than a week and finally won it for about 200 Euro… but it came without a paraffin pressure tank, so I had another problem then… until I’ve found in Slovenian classifieds a complete Taylor’s paraffin cooker 030 for a fraction of the price, so now I have all the components I need and they both look great! I just hope it will all work as well…
