Cheap storage for those small propane bottles that you don't know how to store. I went to Home Depot and bought a three-foot piece of #10 PVC pipe the right diameter to hold the bottles, a glue on (I know it's called weld) bottom cap and an adapter and screw on top. Put it all together, drilled several holes in the bottom and attached the rig to one of the slanted legs of the stern pulpit with a couple of hose clamps. It's lasted for about 10-years now and shows no sign of wear.

Slipped in Bahia Marina, easy access to Corpus Christi Bay and the Gulf of Mexico.
