Re: Gas question....
Best practice these days would be a solenoid at the tank, operated by a switch near to the stove - but accessible in case of a stove-top fire. The switch module should also have a leak detector attached, and can switch off the propane at the tank automatically in case of a leak.
With this setup I feel OK about the manual valve open on the bottle - although I'll still turn it off for the day's sailing, or if I'm leaving the boat.
