Re: propane for bloxygen

Hi folks, I'm the "Bloxygen Guy" and a lifetime sailor.

Please, please don't try this 'trick.' It's dangerous because propane is a very reactive chemical (so reactive that it's flammable). Bloxygen is only about 16 cents per use. Please don't risk an explosion or the loss of expensive finish.

We use ultra pure Argon which is a totally inert component of our atmosphere. Argon is used in manufacturing, medical, and food industries extensively.

Be safe. Fair winds.
