I made a propane storage unit for the small bottles that I use for the propane stern grill and the SeaSwing that I use in the cabin. I went to Home Depot and got a piece of Schedule 10 PVC pipe long enough for three bottles to fit into, added a glue on cap for the bottom and drilled several holes in it. For the top I added a male-threaded collar and screw on top. I attached the rig to one of the legs on the pushpit with large stainless hoseclamps. It cost almost nothing and will probably last forever, it's been use, sittting out in the brutal South Texas sun for over 10 years and it still works great.
