Re: Islander 30 LPG tank size

I think tank size selection would be better made by figuring out how much propane you use.

When we were living aboard, we'd typically have to refill our 20# tank about every 90 days. That's daily use for cooking for two people, typically making coffee in the morning and a dinner in the evening. Of course, your eating habits may be different and could require more/less gas per day.

Since tank lockers can eat up a fair amount of storage space, I think I'd go with the smallest size you need to keep gas aboard between fills.
