Availibility of propane

Hi there lucky one.

I am a swede , and based in Stockholm just now , but me and my wife have been out there
18 years ,in two diffrent boats , the first a
31 foot wood , and the second a 43 foot steel
we have used propane around the world , and never have we had any problem to find gas, we
are using the P11 bottle of europ standard ,
they use the same fitting as your american standard, the P11 stands for 11 kg. witch
translate to 25 lbs , and we have two of these , and living aboard fulltime ,will last 4 month, but we still use our Newport
heater for warmth.
we have filled our bottles in sweden ,canary
isl, panama , suva fiji , in aussie land we had to rent a bottle and fill over , as they donīt fill uncertified bottles, mauritius,
south africa ,brasil and the w.i.so I donīt think that you have to worry.

enjoy life.
