eh. the above motors are outboard and the fuel tanks are out in the open and in a open boat. Not very much more dangerous then someone smoking while running the engine.

Propane in closed spaces is at least as dangerous as gasoline. ANY fuel that's highly volatile and or heavier then air, is the danger with engine rooms and compartments and bilges.
