Damn skippy SD That is one lesson that will never be forgotten. On the new boat I plan on building an aluminum airtight container here at work to store the large 20lb bottle that I will use for the galley as well as the bbq. Probably install propane detectors inside it and in the bilge as well. I recently saw a boat on craigslist that had a propane explosion in it was not a pretty sight.
