Almost makes hexamine tablets start to look good. Or at least, safer, huh? (G)
I use propane on board and have proper locker with two 20lb. tanks. I also keep several 1lb. bottles in that locker for the BBQ. I put four 1lb. bottles in that locker last fall, today all four of them are empty !

I frequently see small butane and propane bottles stored in engine compartments, anchor lockers and under berths !

No fuel is safe in the hands of people below a certain IQ level.
