The stove set up to heat this place in StJohn's in one of the buildings called a "Fish Stage."

This stove started as a 1/8" think steel float for cod fishermen. I cut it in half, welded a 1/2" think cooking plate on the top of the bottom half and hidged the top half for use as an oven. It is air tight, has a window from a boat's elect panel and an "after burner" in the top of the fire box. The "burner" second burns gases in the top of the fire box, it converts CO into CO2 and saves about 30 percent of the wood fuel.
