We have mounted the propane tanks on all our boats to the stern pulpit. On some we have mounted a shelf across the aft end of the stern pulpit, on another we had a bracket fabricated that mounted to one of the legs of the stern pulpit. These installations keep the propane completly above deck with no worries about leaks. We use 2.5 gal aluminum propane bottles to avoid issues with rust and weight. We've used this installation for more than 25 years on 4 different boats with no problems. I have seen some small/tall (1 gal.?) aluminum propane bottles that were mounted to the boom gallows of another Westsail using large hose clamps.

We prefer the instant on/off heat that a propane stove provides and not having to deal with priming and pressurizing of a liquid fueled stove.

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!

See the full list here!
