Wouldn't risk in on the boat but a briefcase stove works well.

In cold weather have 2 gas cannisters and rotate. Shake a lot and put inside your coat. Butane doesn't work well when it is cold.

Yes, thats the type of stove I have already. Fairly safe and can always throw overboard if anything goes wrong. I picture a 2 foot ish square table with sides sitting above or beyond the tube half way down the boat thats brought in when on the move. Would work well as a bait board too .

Open flames, portable fuel tanks with vents that invariably allow gasoline to dribble onto the floorboards, gasoline fumes, what could possibly go wrong?

Why not go all out and inflate the tubes with hydrogen?

Chances are you could do this multiple times without incident, but the risk is still significant, the consequences of having something go wrong (esp while on water) are severe.

Even while on land, if I'm handling portable gasoline containers, I wouldn't allow any kind of flame (or hot element, lit cigarette etc...) to come within 20 feet of the container.

I have cooked on our 6.4m RIB & it's hard work even when it's absolutely flat calm. We even have a table on the bottle rack that provides a hard stable surface & you still need the limbs of an octopus. Would I cook on a SIB? Nope!

Thanks for responses. Looks like its not the best idea in the world. Don't suppose insurance would like it much either. You just can't beat a nice hot bacon butty when out fishing though. Maybe I'll just have to save that for when out on my mates bigger boats.

Imagine the insurance claim form.
Melted a hole in the floor of my pvc boat cooking a bacon butty lol!

I carry a small Coleman Dual Fuel stove and a pan.
Unlike butane burners etc the unleaded petrol burner doesn't blow out in the wind.
I go ashore armed with a frying pan and provisions and rustle up a tasty treat and a nice pot of tea.
