Gidday Team. Greetings from Aotearoa
Im new to the Coleman Craze.
it all started a few months back as winter was settling in. I decided I needed a light/heat source for my boat as the cruddy little LEDs weren't cutting it. I remembered we had a 639 when I was growing up but in my adolescence I threw it out because the globe was broken! what a rookie. still kicking myself all these years later.
Anyway, so far I've managed to collect the following;

222 peak1- this one was hiding in a back cupboard of the boat. didn't even know I had it. Thanks grandad

237 kerosene - found this in in a second hand shop in Waipawa. still trying to get it running- flame is burning outside of the mantle. air tubes are clear so maybe the generator hole is worn out too big

249 scout kerosene- found this one online locally. very bad condition but still quite confident ill get it going

I will start some posts as I'm sure I will need some help getting these old beauties going and discover the history of each

Keep "the sunshine of the night" shining bright

I didn't know there was any other fuel, other than Kero. I actually put kero in my 222 and wondered why it was so hard to light. once the generator was preheated with a lighter for a minute or so it did light though.

Welcome from the wilds of NE Oregon!

What kind of boat do you have? Curious as my father lives up north (Kaitaia?) and is a life-long sailor. He's been a multi-hull sailor since the late '70s and currently has a very nice, one-off 39' Cat.

Nice start on the collection!

I hope you and Andrew can work out an equitable division of territory.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

Such a welcoming from all you lantern enthusiasts

My boat is a home built RORC32 Heartly. 32 foot causing yacht. My Grandfather built the boat and launched it in 1980. the 222peak1 I found in a back cupboard is dated January 1980 so its probably the original lantern he brought for the boat

I had to look that yacht up. Pretty cool ride!

I kind of miss sailing, but, then, I kind of don't, too.

The only lanterns we ever had on a boat growing up were kerosene wickie anchor lights. We had a tri-color at one time--wish I had that one. Then electricity took over.

If you ever find yourself up around the 90-mile beach, look my dad up: Fred Turrentine. You'll have a blast swapping sailing stories with him--and he won't drink all your beer anymore. He sailed without a land address from '78 'til the early 2010s.
