CSI CNG Stove to LPG

Can anyone point me in the right direction as far as converting the CNG stove to LPG?

It says CSI Gas Systems on the front.

For some reason I still haven't figured out how to attach photos.

How about these links:

My boat came with CNG and I learned this is no acceptible conversion. You have to replace the stove, replace the line, regulator - everything.

You will need to model number and serial number to contact Seward (the new makers of these stoves) for a conversion kit. I have one of their CNG stoves and need to call to get the info too!

Their number is (562) 6997997

Just curious, why do you want tp convert? Is it hard to get refils in your area? I have CNG and the tanks seem to last a long time. CNG is much safer. Luckily a supplier is about 5 minutes away.

We want to do a Bahamas and maybe Caribbean cruise and from what I have heard, it is next to impossible to get CNG along the way.

How long do you think two scuba style tanks would last? Probably not all winter, is my thinking....

Do you have a propane BBQ? I think the small coleman propane tanks are pretty easy to get at least in the states. How many spare CNG tanks could you carry?
