Shouldn't be air tight...should have a drain overboard for the any propane gas that leaks to drain out.
If it is airtight, it could be come an explosion hazard.

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.
