I was out last week and doing ok on shrimp. I decided to saute some coonstripes and onions on my Coleman stove. All started well, but then the flame suddenly reduced by 1/2 or more in volume so I shut down the burner to check things out. As soon as the burner was doused, I heard a hissing so I immediately unscrewed the fuel canister. About 2 seconds later, flames start rolling out from under the stove and singed both my arms up to my elbows. I always keep a water soaked towel next to me when I use the stove and was able to extinguish the flames...but they didn't want to give up easily. The housing that is normally cool to the touch even after a long cooking session was hot as heck and melted through my KiwiGrip top coat and into the fiberglass. It was easy to fix but it was a big surprise all at once. The wet towel saved the day. There is only a plastic sleeve and an O ring in that assembly but one or both failed. The stove is pretty much destroyed...but at least I didn't have to swim for shore.
