Home centers have purpose made bases for standard propane tanks. About $9. I used to use a flower pot base but it collected water and rusted the propane tank. Now I have a proper base.

Our LPG/propane bottles are enclosed in a vented area on the flybridge,with a cut-off valve inside the saloon,well before the LPG piping reaches the stove. While those bottles are well restrained,another stored there for the bbq was not so well tied down, I glued in the saucer base for a plastic 300mm flowerpot, the bottle now sits snug and dry in it, restrained with a lashing.

Hopefully by self determined dive.
