Re: Why doesn't anyone use propane refrigeration on a boat?

We had a full sized front opening unit on Herreshoff NY 40 in the 70's but only used at anchor. Had forklift tank on deck. Kept the liquid assets at room temperature rather than on the rocks Safety is the big issue as well as the market it overwhelmed with 12v DC units and that's what builders and aftermarket promote.
