For about a year I have had a Tiny Tot stove, intending to install it into Whimbrel.
I finally completed the job. Last weekend Maria and I stayed on board for the night. It was delightful.
I started the fire with dried sticks and paper, and soon added hardwood charcoal. Regular but not frequent feeding (approximately 6, 10 pm and 2 and 6 am....it did not need relighting... ever), kept the cabin nicely warm throughout the night, and for breakfast.
This is not the first time I have installed a stove, either solid fuel or oil fired, but I just want to say how satisfying this has been. I am really impressed with the performance. I have not had good experiences with charcoal before, but I know I would have been more occupied with feeding sticks than I was with the charcoal. All in all a resounding success.
