Bob dislikes the propane tank installation in the lazarette. Whether that's really a good installation or not depends on that compartment. If it's completely sealed with a 3/4" vent at the bottom, the way a propane compartment on a boat is supposed to be, it's as OK as it gets.

That's the arrangement on Sea Breeze. I sealed off the lazarette and installed a small thruhull, the way the Coast Guard says to do, and I'm happy with the result. A 20 pound aluminum propane bottle makes its home in there.

When I bought the boat two 20 pound propane bottles sat on the caprail under the gallows. On the first ocean trip, on a benign ocean, one fell off three times and I jettisoned it. That was a mickey mouse arrangement and I didn't like how it looked at all. I like a clean deck.

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!
