How to connect American propane line to European stove

Our (new to us) Freedom 35 was outfitted in Europe with a propane stove with European, metric fittings. When we bought her this winter the surveyor did not like the multiple junctions that had been created between the tanks and the stove and recommended that we replace them with one solid line. Fine, we thought. But now our yard manager says that he has taken out the old line, put in a new one but cannot find a part that will join the American line to the European stove. Does anyone have a source for such a thing? We know nothing about the mechanics of this so would appreciate any advice and sources/URLs, etc. Thank you. Faith

Try contacting the stove manufacturer. It is likely that they sell the same stove in both the US and the EU. If so, then a simple part change may be all you need to make the stove compatible with the US style gas fittings.

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.

Hi Faith,

That's odd, we had the same problem with gas lines on our Moody, but were able to replace the multi-joined copper tube with a standard Trident hose we'd ordered from Sailnet.

Our stove is a Plastimo Neptune stove and I was actually surprised when the new hose just screwed right on the pipe coming out the back. We also added the solinoid and gas warning and it's been going strong for five years.

If you really can't get it to fit you might take the parts to a local machine shop and have them make you an adapter.
