Re: New Lehr propane outboard
Plenty of warehouse equipment (forklifts, etc) that aren't electric have been running propane for ages, so there's no reason why it couldn't work here. Economy and power may not be as good, but there's certainly a convenience factor, and in this case the propane is literally 'off the boat' unlike a stove as long as the outboard is not in a well.
