Re: Bad news, composite propane tank recall
Personally, I don't get why I would buy a composite 20 lb propane tank for 80 bucks.
That's the cost of three to four regular tanks that I could just dispose of every 5 to 10 years. For that matter, I'm not familiar with whether the composite tanks have a lifespan. If they do, I'm even more perplexed.
Are they steel tanks? I can't imagine putting any tank on the boat that is not either aluminum or composite. I would think that steel would have serious rust issues. Maybe you touch them up every year with paint. They are sure MUCH MUCH cheaper.
