    Great thanks. I'll try trimming the wick. It was square cut to start with but may have burned unevenly (I may have lit too quickly without waiting for it to soak up properly).

    I have a question for those with hurricane lamps - I love the light they output but it seems to be very variable.

    Not a bad idea at all. It'd probably leave a little in the can though. I was just going to get a small funnel.

    Its relatively easy to take spare oil. A bit harder to take spare batteries etc. I suppose it depends on the trip duration, danger to fragile components etc

    As an aside, can I ask what each lamp...

    Did you find a suitable boat or are you still looking? What is your budget as I have a Novacraft Prospector 16 that might be available.

    I used to with the last boat but for some reason, the Nova SP3 prospector slides more than the old Disco did. Hence the pads.

    Cheers guys. It certainly sounds like the firefly is exactly what I'm after. The Afon & Hou don't sound like they're aimed where I need them.

    That's an excellent idea. Robert @ Burnett Boats was also suggested as a potential source though I think he is more involved in exotic materials now.

    Would you glass the shaft and handle as well or not?
    If not, what stops the water getting under the glass at the transition?
