The tanks are under the helm station on the fly bridge. Same compartment as electronics and chase tubes to steering.

[QUOTE="Chris and Roger;142012"]Hi
Can I ask were you have your propane tank. Having such problems with trying to install the proper way/QUOTE]

The fly ridge is very practical because you can route the hose down through a locker.

That was my first thought but it must has the gasket on the TOP. Even it I make a slide out, not enough room vertical or horizontal. Maybe a smaller tank than the 20# would work, but don't think it would last long. It is also 3 levels up from the galley, a lot of up and down. UGH

Oh the propane pain

OK another solution would be to mount a horizontal propane tank on the port side (same as galley) and make the port helm storage seat with a top gasket and overboard vent. Don't want to be a statistic or in a burn ward.
Thanks to all of you for you knowledge and patience

FWIW as an example about how one builder did/does it, Grand Banks located the propane locker on most of their models in the seat base for the port fore-and-aft-facing seats on the flying bridge. With the exception of the propane line itself there is no equipment in this space that requires access through the main cabin overhead. So the compartment is totally isolated from the interior of the boat. A simple vent from this space out the side of the flying bridge is all that's needed.

We replaced the single BBQ-size propane tank that came with the boat with a pair of Worthington aluminum horizontal tanks. While these tanks are not large one can get us through most of a year. But having a second tank means that when the first tank inevitably runs out of propane halfway through cooking a meal, it's a simple matter to switch over to the other tank and get the empty one filled after we get home.
