Not sure my boat vibrates much . Other than a rubber hose not sure what material to use. I wanted to avoid the long propane
hose runs. Of course the last few feet connected would be hose for range movement. What's the best plan for getting propane to the range?.
You can purchase
the hose to any length with correct fittings from any propane/natural gas equipment
You might not feel the vibrations but the rig on your sailboat is constantly humming and that vibration is passing through the entire structure.
This is the same reason that solid copper AC conductors are not acceptable in a boat. I have seen hundreds of failures of solid core
copper AC conductors, copper fuel
lines, propane lines and copper fittings on engines.
