propane sniffer
Please, I don't want to start a debate over the wisdom of propane systems on boats.

If you have a propane system or any propane appliances on your boat, do you have a propane sniffer (detector/alarm)? If so, would you be so kind as to share what brand and where you purchased it. Thank you very much!

Tree, I think they all work well enough. Any well-stocked chandlery carries at least one brand. Every catalog house does. Pick one you like.

Propane has such a distinctive odor, I cannot imagine my nose failing me.

If you're asleep, I doubt that your nose will wake you up...

Innotek Portable Gas Detector
$30. you can use it after reconnecting the tank and in the galley after the stove's been off for a bit. Best protection is turning of the tank valves after each use.
