Propane to CNG

I''m buying a boat with a propane stove, but want to switch it out to CNG. Has anyone made this conversion?

I know all the arguments propaners will make about CNG availability and cost, so I don''t need to rehash all of that...thanks.

Propane to CNG

I currenty have a CNG stove. CNG Distributors are far and few between. I''m also looking for a CNG heater and cannot find one. All the manufactures that used to have them, or at least conversion kits, no longer carry them. If anyone knows where I can find a CNG cabin heater I''d sure like to hear from you. New or used, I''m not picky.

Propane to CNG

I''m a CNG specialist for the City fuel sites. CNG is working it''s way in real fast. I plan to change all my boat stuff over eventually. I''d go a CNG motor as well if CNG were more available. Which it is to me, but not when I retire. Anyway, Force 10 makes a CNG heater...........

Rrayfield-

If they haven't found a CNG heater in the past three-and-a-half years, I doubt that they're still looking for one. Please check the dates on posts before replying to a thread, and read this post to get the most out of your time on Sailnet.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
