what is hard about replacing a line every 2 years?
you can have a leak in the propane and be cooking and still nothing happens at all...I have done it when cooking at the beach house and you smell it...all you do is replace the valve or line next time you cook
on a boat having fan in the bige is stupidity and you are making something SO SIMPLE so complicated
its the potential sparks of said fan(especially if not a brushlessmotor) that would ignite propane
all you would need to do if you smell gas is simply open bilge and wave a pillow and the gas will flow out
I mean come on guys
Do what you want. I'll just use a stove that that is safe without relying on anything else.
