Propane Tank Location for Heater

I'm planning on adding another propane tank on my boat, but the current tank compartment already is taken for the stove/oven.m where do boats that need another tank put them?.. On deck I suppose, but would look not so nice, though it would only be there short periods on either end of the season when I am on a mooring, but might need to be there cruising occasionally. It will need to be in a ventilated space, which is the real problem.

And you can't just tee off (in the locker!) the existing tank?
