Exactly right!

I found the adapter at West Marine a few years back, and added two small tanks (carried in an outside locker) after I ran out of propane on the big tank one cold morning just as I was about to make breakfast/coffee. Another boat nearby had the adapter and a small tank, and that saved our bacon!
