Fastnet Oil Lamp
For over 40 years, the Fastnet Lamp has earned the respect of serious offshore sailors because of its highly sensitive gimbal mechanism which includes the heat-shield, and allows the lamp to be used safely at any angle of heel.
WHY GIMBAL THE HEAT SHIELD?
The heat shield, which is also sometimes referred to as a 'smoke bell', is an essential safety feature for any bulkhead mounted oil lamp. Its main purpose is to diffuse heat and prevent 'hot spots' from developing on the overhead and/or surrounding cabinetwork.
Most bulkhead mounted lamps are indeed gimballed, yet the common arrangement is for the heat shield to be hard-mounted separately (not gimballed), just above the chimney.
But heat rises, and offshore sailing conditions can be unpredictable with cross-swells, wakes from distant ships and steep quartering waves. So naturally, the gimballed heat shield is preferable because of its ability to continue functioning regardless of the sea state.
The unique design of the Fastnet Lamp also allows for 30-degrees of fore and aft 'pitch,' and prevents the chimney from slapping the bulkhead when beating to windward in heavy seas.
The Fastnet Lamp is also fitted with a hinged burner which makes it easy to light without removing the chimney. An extra-wide 1" wick provides effective cabin lighting, and there's a carry handle so that it can be lifted clear of the frame for portable use as a cockpit or table lamp.
Solid brass construction. Height including heat-shield 12.5". Capacity 300ml (11 fl-oz) sufficient for 12 hours burning. Burns any good lamp oil (available at most hardware stores) or liquid paraffin. Can also be used with kerosene.
