CNG to Propane Conversion

I would be happy to. I live aboard and my boat came with CNG. It was a hassle to get the cng and very expensive. It is 55$ to exchange at the marina I am at now. One tank of cng lasted me less than a month. I called CSI and even though the stove is now sold by seaward they helped me get the conversion kit. The reason you have to run a new thermostat is because the kit comes with a new oven knob? assembely and the thermostat and copper coil go into it. The orifices just screw out ands you screw in the new ones. I got the number from a plaque in the stove. As far as the locker stuff you can always hang it on your sternrail, the cost of living aboard and buying cng isn''t really an option as you almost need 2 tanks so you have gas when the other ran out.
