Propane Tank Mount
 
I''m looking for a couple of stainless propane tank holders that can be mounted outside of the aft pulpit rail.

I have seen this setup many times but can''t find out who makes them.

We made our own with SS tubing and some clamps...

I find it surprising that no one seems to make an off the shelf stainless strao/clamp for hanging gass bottles off a rail.

I purchased a holder for the skinny 6# LP tank from the Fisheries in Seattle. They were great...it came standard with 1" fittings, but my arch is 1 1/4" tubing. Before jury-rigging something, I asked if the clamps be made for 1 1/4". HE got back to me and asked if $25.00 would be OK. OK?...I grabbed that fast. Who modifies anything today for $25? I have been delighted with the propane holder.

Try powertank.com. See if it works for you.

Well there you go. I've certainly never seen one down here but those two look quite suitable. Thanks for the feedback.

Tad late on this thread but I'll give it a go.
What is wrong with using fender holders to hold aluminum propane tanks?
It looks like the 6 and 10 pound tanks would fit in fender holders like these:
Helm Products FH105ELX 10.5 Inch Stainless Steel Single Boat Fender Holder | Great Lakes Skipper

Are the fender holders to flimsy to secure a propane tank?

We use a SS fender holder. Put it on back in the 1990s and been great ever since!

By the way, forgot to say that each of our 6# tanks last 4 to 6 weeks. That's for 2 of us, full time use in very remote areas. We carry 3 tanks, one in use & 2 spare. We used to carry 4, but never needed that much!
