I just bought a J/30 up here in Alaska. It looks a previous owner made some modifications to the galley including removing the original stove. I can only imagine that it was gimbaled, for example. The previous owner I bought the boat from had a brand-new Dometic alcohol stove that fits in the covered cavity next to the sink (see photos).

Does anyone have an idea what the original setup was? I see now gimbal brackets in this galley. Anyone know how to proceed? How have you handled this? Maybe there is a gimbal kit that I can use for this alcohol stove?

Not sure what age is your boat. Does it sleep 6? If so here is a link to brochure from that era:


I just mounted an Origo two burner stove in place of the pressure stove that came stock. I don't use the gimbal feature.

Here's a photo that might match the factory setup for your boat. That is an Origo 4000. Notice the gimbal function takes place in a frame, not directly on the stove.
