Re: Propane availability in the bahamas
Two tanks is wise for more than one reason. Should you develop a leak in one, you aren't SOL. However, if all goes normally, even two 10 lb tanks should last a very long time in the Bahamas. Presumably there is no heating going on and limited desire for an oven. I would think you could get 6 months of regular stove top use. Put the spare on the rail, with a cover, if no room in your locker.
Are you cruising longer? If so, you should have plenty of time to track down a refill somewhere along the way. I like the idea of spare 1lb canisters. Just store them in the same vented locker and buy caps for the potentially leaky buggers. Never use them down below.
