    Checking things out...-gctid346704

    Greetings,

    Just purchased my first boat, a 1884 Contessa Command Bridge. I need to rebuild the stove and am wondering if there is anyone out there that has done this. Is there a schematic available that I can get my hands on? Is there a replacement stove that is an easy install that someone has tried? And...I would like to keep a safe heater on board during the winter plugged into shore power. Any recommendations? Any help appreciated! Take care! JG

    welcome to the zoo.......

    first off...it should be an origo stove....go to the website and call them...they can help with parts...they are pretty much drop in stoves and you probably have a circuit card that blew a diode....open up where the circuit card is and check for a burned out diode...then contact origo......they can send a new card...

    second....any UL heater ..I have a ceramic heater in my boat.....will do....

        2nd the Ceramic heater. Most heaters should have a tilt switch that kills the heater when it's tipped over too far.

              I have a Vornado fan heater- I prefer it at is heats and circulates the air. Has 2 heat settings (750 and 1500w), choice of thermostatic or continuous heat, and tip over protection.

                    That's why I highlighted the 1884 typo.

                      Welcome! That should be a great boat for you, and you'll love having an F/B boat.

                      Ya know what they say don't you? Once F/B'd, ya can't go back!

                      This would be Volvo Penta powered and that is a plus IMO.

                      However, I have three little words for you... actually four: PDS Bearings!

                      If no history of these having been replaced, I'd stronly encourage you to do so and avoid a failure here.

                      All too often these are forgotten and are not serviced and/or replaced.

                        Welcome aboard. I pulled my stove out last year (currently posted on CL locally). I don't know what condition yours is in but here are a couple pictures of mine if you're interested:
