The photo was taken to show the tank. We DO have a white Sunbrella cover on it at all times.

We don't have a lot of space back there, so only have one, but we have never had a big problem with it that way.

Re: Propane Tank Mount

Great idea, thanks.

I've been looking at modifying my propane setup as I am really not a fan of my current one.

By the way, forgot to say that each of our 6# tanks last 4 to 6 weeks. That's for 2 of us, full time use in very remote areas. We carry 3 tanks, one in use & 2 spare. We used to carry 4, but never needed that much!

I have seen this setup many times but can''t find out who makes them.
We use a SS fender holder. Put it on back in the 1990s and been great ever since!

Tad late on this thread but I'll give it a go.
What is wrong with using fender holders to hold aluminum propane tanks?
It looks like the 6 and 10 pound tanks would fit in fender holders like these:
Helm Products FH105ELX 10.5 Inch Stainless Steel Single Boat Fender Holder | Great Lakes Skipper

Are the fender holders to flimsy to secure a propane tank?

tdw Well there you go. I've certainly never seen one down here but those two look quite suitable. Thanks for the feedback.

bchaps I purchased a holder for the skinny 6# LP tank from the Fisheries in Seattle. They were came standard with 1" fittings, but my arch is 1 1/4" tubing. Before jury-rigging something, I asked if the clamps be made for 1 1/4". HE got back to me and asked if $25.00 would be OK. OK?...I grabbed that fast. Who modifies anything today for $25? I have been delighted with the propane holder.

here is the link:

I find it surprising that no one seems to make an off the shelf stainless strao/clamp for hanging gass bottles off a rail.
