Propane tank

Sorry to take so long in replying but haven''t been on this site in a while.
If you are still interested , the company is AAA Propane Service, 621 Maulhardt Ave. Oxnard, California Phone 805 988 9688
The horizontal tanks don''t need to be converted to the new style valve so that helps.
I have taken my tank off and replaced it with an aluminum vertical tank. I placed two milk boxes on the seat behind the wheel and one holds the anchor rode and the other the propane tank and the trash. I have added tops to these boxes and they make a great seat for motoring in conjested areas where I like to get visibility over the dodger.

Propane tank

I picked up a horizontal tank at a propane store in Oxnard, Ca. It was used but the salesman filled it and gave it a 5 year certification. I took it home, painted it and slapped it on the boat. He had several horizontal tanks and a ton of vertical tanks.
The filled tank was sold to me for $20.00.

I have contacted Worthington. They don''t tell me if they make the tank and tell me I have to go through a distributor, suggesting West Marine. They were even nice enought o give the phone # of the nearest (which, of course, I had) West has no idea if Worthington makes one and say they need a model # from the manufacturer. Catch 22. (I liked that book/movie.)

I believe that worthington makes a horizontal tank at 10 pounds. I spent a lot of effort locating a 5 pounder unseccessfully.

Try an RV store.They often nuse them . If your tank is not rusted,you can get it recertified at a fraction of the cost of new

A big time thank you! I did google, but apparently I did not enter the same key words you did. that may be just what I need. It is a lot of money, but hey, we are rich boaters so who cares?
