Re: Propane Stove, Tanks and Grill

has anyone replaced the oven with another model that fits the same space or are there some Mahe models that were delivered with a different model?

Re: Propane Stove, Tanks and Grill

Yet another problem. The short 'pigtail' connection between my stove propane tank and regulator leaks...at the crimped connection. Said pigtail is made by Coflex in Mexico. I couldn't find a local distributor so emailed Coflex on Monday asking for same; waiting on a response. The link below goes to their site and shows what I have. Anyone have a similar pigtail and know how to source one stateside? This regulator/hose assembly has markedly larger inlet/outlet diameters as compared against a standard barbecue grill regulator/hose assembly.

Coflex ll Conectores Flexibles, Brida Flexible, Trampas Flexibles, entre otras innovaciones

Regards,

Bob

I would think you could find the correct pieces using Trident, available as most marine stores.

Trident Marine: LPG Hose & Fittings

Or any hydraulic shop can crimp about anything.

Re: Propane Stove, Tanks and Grill

Seastream,

You can buy the standard LP tank fitting and regulator as one unit at Home Depot for $20 usd.

Re: Propane Stove, Tanks and Grill

Question: Does anyone have a propane leak detector and/or shutoff solenoid on their Mahe and if so did either/both come with the boat new or aftermarket?

Re: Propane Stove, Tanks and Grill

I have the Fireboy-Xintex system.

S-2A Propane and CNG Fume Monitor and Control from Fireboy-Xintex

I choose it because solenoid is high pressure and is placed before the regulator, hence it shuts off everything. Most systems include a low pressure solenoid.

Re: Propane Stove, Tanks and Grill

We had one fitted on our Lipari but we have to change the gas locker location in Australia so it was added as part of the install here

Re: Propane Stove, Tanks and Grill

Where was your gas bottle locker originally located on your Lipari?

Re: Propane Stove, Tanks and Grill

The origin Locker is under a seat in the Saloon just outside the sliding door, room for 2 big 9KG bottles. Now holds the Life jackets and safety gear. To meet Aus regs has to be moved to the anchor locker. Only room for 1 4KG bottle at a time

Re: Propane Stove, Tanks and Grill

Thank you.

On the Orana it was and is already in the anchor locker.

On the Mahe it is in the same position you describe as original.. We had no issue with certification. Strange.

Re: Propane Stove, Tanks and Grill

Not sure why, However ours and 2 other Lipari's that we know, have all been done this way as part of the Australian commissioning. Agree it's strange as it is outside and would drain through the scuppers that are directly below and next to it. Maybe its some strange Queensland rule so the state gov can charge for something extra, as to get the boat registered in QLD we needed a gas certificate.

It would also have been ok if they had used a bigger lockable box in the Anchor locker so that it could take at least a 9kg bottle. A 4kg bottle lasts us about 8 weeks so not too bad just the 4kg costs almost the same to fill as a 9kg. Just have to carry a couple of spares. I'll add fit bigger gas box to the list of jobs.

Re: Pot Holder

Love the pot holders Mark - they look like (much newer) versions of what I have on my old Eno) - any idea what the manufacturer is and where they can be found? I've been looking for ages!
