Hat, I can''t speak for the Keys but we saw not one CNG vendor in all of the Caribbean we visited. It''s a product solving a problem that the islanders don''t know they have. It''s also a lousy cruising fuel due to its limited endurance for a given tank size.

We used to have CNG on our previous boat and I think the marina at Man O'' War Cay in the Abacos used to have it. We found that by carrying a 2nd tank after completely filling in FL that we could stay 6 weeks in the Bahamas without needing a re-fill until we returned to FL.
