Very hard to get. Between Nassau

only available in Marsh Harbour. If you're in Green Turtle they put it on the boat and you get it when the boat returns.
Most of the Bahamian folks that cook with it have big tanks
that they put on the mailboat and get filled in Nassau
and returned the following week.
You have to remember your dinghy
is your lifeline here. Can't wait a week to get fuel for it.
Waiting for the weekly propane truck in Georgetown
. There is another spot also in GT to get propane, if the truck has not broken down and is in Nassau for repairs
. On the bright side, they will fill anything, no matter how rusty.
