If you can smell it and there is any flame or spark, get off the boat. I would check the entire gas line for any sign of stress. You should never smell anything when the flame is on.

The float valve seems to have been the culprit. I guess some fuel gummed it up over the winter. I sprayed the system with carb cleaner from PB and it now works fine. Thanks for the thoughts.

Any Carbana wax, hard if possible, will help insulate the mast from salt and dirt. Cleaning and waxing the sail track is great for the crew. I wonder how beeswax would work.
