Re: Islander 30 LPG tank size

Hi guys

I have one of the relatively new fiberglass tanks in the port side cockpit locker in a vented holder I built out of fiberglass. Although the tank is the same size as the standard 20 lb tank, it only holds 11 lbs. I regularly go out cruising for 30 days at a time (summer) and use the propane for the two burner stove/oven as well as a Newport 12,000 btu cabin heater. Not that I use the heater often in the summer, but I have yet to run out. The option I carry is an adapter to be able to spin on one of the 1 lb disposable cans if I do run out.
