gas bottle storage

to all 11.0A owners - where do you keep you gas bottle when in use.
The P.O. of Skye Water built a locker inside the cockpit locker, but it is below the floor of the cockpit. I've been using it like this for about 5 years now and so far no problems, but, should the ultimate happen and gas escapes from the bottle or connections, it will fall into the bilge under the engine then accumulate in the sump behind the keel. I'd prefer the bottle in it's own sealed locker which drains over the side, or at least into the cockpit, but not a lot of room here. Otherwise in a cage fixed to the transom (ugly). So where do you keep yours ?
