Cast Iron Neptune Marine Boat Stove

Here is another craigslist ad for a marine stove. One of my goals with the Tiny House Meets conversation is to figure out the best place to put all the great craigslist ads without them being posts. Right now I am leaning towards either creating a specific page or only highlighting them on the Tiny House Facebook page. I feel they are important as they let you know what is out there but I don’t have time to make posts out of each and every one of them.

This one is important though, as Olivia is trying to raise funds as quickly as possible so that they can do a medical treatment for her grandfather. Plus it is a real bargain at $875 and I think someone in the Tiny House community may find good use for it. Here it is in Olivia’s words and you can view the craigslist ad here.

I’ve got a wonderful little cast iron Washington Stove Works Neptune type 2-A in great condition. It has the built in griddle, a burner, an oven, and even still has the pot rails! It was originally a wood or coal burning stove but has been converted to diesel (will need new carb), however could very easily be used for wood or coal again. This stove has been in our family for many many years and has been very well taken care of.

Perfect for a classic or new boat, tiny house, small shop, or for those unconventional types, an airstream, bus, or Tumbleweed tiny house! New stoves like this retail for close to $3000.00 plus tax and shipping and are 3-6 months out as they are manufactured in India and then shipped over (http://marinestove.com/halibutinfo.htm

)

This stove is a piece of Washington history, as it was manufactured in Everett out of good ol’ American cast iron! 360-582-7893

I was going to ask you where i could send local craigslist ads for tiny houses, etc. It would be a great idea to have one place for them!
Thanks- DLB

    Hi Deb, you can email them to me at tinyhouseblog (@) gmail.com.

    I am still trying to figure out the best way to post them but will get them out there one way or another.

      Hi Kent,

      Not the Facebook option please. I may be the last person in the world without Facebook, but perhaps there are others too.

        Yeah, I’m another one who doesn’t do facebook, so please no facebook.

        I avoid facebook also, and would like to continue to do so. Count me a no vote for facebook options.

A nice stove. I would opt for the using wood too, but probably not the best thing for a tiny house on wheels. Hot coals may drop out while hauling and start a fire. It would be great for a fixed house or shop though.

    Bill, this was built for a BOAT. I’m sure it would be safe for a house on wheels.

I’ve had a bus conversion with a wood stove, as long as you install it properly and use appropriate equipment it’s fine. However, the fire should be out before you go down the road and you can shovel out any leftover coals and deal with them. Make sure you have a fire extinguisher easily accessible at all times, which is good general practice for any house, tiny or not.

I would go for the wood option as well with this great stove. I don’t do Facebook either.
Thanks Kent.
