Two of these lamps were purchased and they are wonderful. Very functional and they look great too. I plan to use them in a boat, but they would be a great addition to a nautical themed room and if the power fails, they are a great backup light source. They even provide enough light to read by without eye strain.
Not for laymen, great for the seasoned!
Been boating 53 years. Contractor for 27 years. This product, used correctly, lights up a very large area compared to most similar styles. It holds plenty of fuel, and is easily refilled, cleaned and re-wicked. I did use a stabilizer under the body of the lamp to keep it level as a precaution. Ordered 3 more!
