Wow, I ran one for 12 years; removed the shipping bolts on day one and found it easy to maintain. If I could have gotten longer burn times I would still be burning it.

Yes, we loved our Castine. I didn't find it particularly hard to maintain. It is a good looking burner, especially in the blue black enamel, but I too went for longer burns and a bigger stove belly. No regrets.

No Bolts= No Problem.
I too would gladly go get your F400.
