Propane locker for CNG conversion

We are looking at buying a boat (we might be getting very close here... kind of exciting and scary!)

The subject boat has CNG and I'd like to convert it to LPG. Few questions:

1) I don't know the specific model of stove, but from what I've read, I think the jets have to be changed to run off of propane?

2) What size tanks do most folks use? I was thinking that two of the 10 lb composite would probably work pretty well?

3) I was surfing on propane lockers and came to this page. I'm surprised that then vent appears to be at the top of the locker. If I were to build my own locker, wouldn't it make more sense for the vent to be at the bottom? Maybe that is because the round tank almost seals in the locker?

4) If I have two tanks (only one in use at a time) should the "reserve" tank also be in a vented locker?
