Sailormann-

I would put it forward, away from the stove. Some gas leaks are inevitable, since there are times you won't burn all the gas when lighting it... what you want is the sensor to tell you if the propane is gathering in the cabin... placing it near the stove is going to give you a lot of false alarms... since LPG is kind of going to be present, in at least some small quantities, right near the stove. Putting the sensor down low, near the front of the cabin will warn you if the levels in the boat are becoming a danger...and IMHO be far more useful.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
