Installing Propane Tank for Culinary Perfection

Tejas and Feta, I am here! And I am a Lady Pirate ready to exchange tips and advice.

Does any one know how to hook up the tank that feeds propane to my oven and stove? Also, where can I buy the tank and the gas (they are not on the boat, but I found the little cradle it sits in and the hose you connect it to). And, there is a converter that I need to buy since the appliances were originally powered by natural gas - I heard I can switch it to propane by installing a little do-hickey.

Suggestions?

PB,
Please be VERY cautious around propane on a boat. Make sure you have a proper locker outside of cabin areas, with bottom vents, a CO2 detector & propane sniffer, an automatic shutoff solenoid and ABYC approved gas appliances.

Propane is heavier than air and can accumulate in your boat's bilges. As you might already know, propane, or LPG (liquid petroleum gas), is also extremely flamable and explosive in both gaseous & liquid states.

If leaks develop, any spark in your bilge area will result in quite an impressive explosion. Not the way you'd like to celebrate the 4th of July.

Thumbs up Yessir, Captain!

Wow! Thanks for those words of caution - I am always the type to just dive in and tend to run headlong into problems because of this tendancy!

I will definitely have someone more experienced help me set up all those things you mentioned. I imagined it would be fairly simply to just install the tank, but it sounds like I need to make sure I do it correctly to avoid burning down my new home before I have even lived there a month.

Although, that would take care of the termites!

OK, I will try to follow your advice as much as possible.

Actually, what you should get are LPG and CO detectors. CO2 isn't anywhere near as dangerous as CO...

I would also check to make sure the stove and oven have thermocouple-based auto shutoff features. If not, it is probably worth replacing them with a unit that does. This feature shuts the gas feed off if the flame goes out. It helps prevent unburned propane from venting into the boat and causing an explosive atmosphere in the boat's bilge or cabin.

Also, I would double check any existing piping or hoses for the LPG installation, as they may not be up to spec.

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.

This whole propane thing seems like much more work than the owners told me - they were pretty much "just hook up a tank here and start cooking!"

So, maybe I will just get a BBQ and learn to use charcoal to cook stuff.

Or maybe I will just get into the sushi thing and eat my fish raw!

Just as a warning... charcoal can be a bad fuel to store on a boat. It does weird/dangerous things if it gets damp. Also, many marinas forbid the use of charcoal-based grills in alot of places. Propane, when properly installed, is far safer and easier to use, and more cost-effective than charcoal.

What you might want to do, if only for peace of mind, is have your propane system checked by a professional. It could be, that everything is fine, or it could need replaced, but, either way, you know for sure.
