If he is mounting on the sternrail and has a uninterupted line from tank to stove, a sniffer would not be needed, and if he makes it a habit to shut the propane off at the tank first and the the stove burn off excess propane, then there is no need for a solenoid, I think a solenoid is more conveinence than a safety item.

Freedom comes when youíre ready to sail away. True freedom comes when you donít have to return
Cut off from the land that bore us, betrayed by the land we find, where the brightest have gone before us and the dullest remain behind, .......but stand to your glasses, steady,.......tis all we have left to prize, raise a cup to the dead already, hurrah for the next that dies
