PB,
Please be VERY cautious around propane on a boat. Make sure you have a proper locker outside of cabin areas, with bottom vents, a CO2 detector & propane sniffer, an automatic shutoff solenoid and ABYC approved gas appliances.

Propane is heavier than air and can accumulate in your boat's bilges. As you might already know, propane, or LPG (liquid petroleum gas), is also extremely flamable and explosive in both gaseous & liquid states.

If leaks develop, any spark in your bilge area will result in quite an impressive explosion. Not the way you'd like to celebrate the 4th of July.
