No, I wouldn't re-fill them... that's probably not too safe.

No, you probably can't get them that easily outside of the USA.

Yes, you can get a low pressure adapter for the stoves or grills in many cases.

I've used some of the "stovetop grills" and they're not bad...but they tend to fairly smokey and you're probably better off grilling outside the boat, rather than having the greasy smoke inside the boat.

Yes, you probably do need to get a marine stove if you're planning on making any longer passages, where you might have to cook under sail. If you don't have a gimbaled stove, cooking can become very dangerous.

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.
