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.
