Yes, but a bilge full of propane and a spark is a bomb.

Mr. r. I agree. I was just pointing out one of the potential dangers of alcohol. Let's not get into yet another "propane will blow you up" discussion. Of course it will. Similarly so might a gas powered vessel if you have a leak into the bilge. Gosh, you might even get hit by lightning.
