Re: Propane tank adapter

Coleman 1-Pound Propane Tank Adapter: Camping : Walmart.com

Please do not do a direct connect of 1lb propane tank for this usage in the vessel. Propane is heavier than air and will sink to the lowest point of the boat and wait to explode. I am sure the hosing to the ouside tank probably has a solenoid shut off for a reason,,,,protection. These 1 lb tanks teak after they have been removed sometimes and the valve sticks open
