Re: Coleman propane canisters

I hate those little green bottles. I got a 2.5 gallon tank and hose that threads right into the magma. The hose is called a disposable adaptor or something like that. I think it was around $15. The 2.5 gallon is mounted on the outside of the stern rail.

Re: Coleman propane canisters

A little OT, but has anyone else notice that the Bernzomatic small bottles don't work as well as the Coleman. It takes a few lights to get the Bernzomatic on the grill going, one with the Coleman.

The small 1lb Lp bottles are available at most small island hardware stores and of course the big box stores will have them. Storing them safely is the issue. I never carry more than two and one of them will be used.

Question, where do you guy store them? I've twice had them leak on me in cockpit lockers, so that's out. My cooking fuels are alcohol and CNG.

Re: Coleman propane canisters

As with for any size bottle:

Any place relatively cool and free of sparks that is vented to the outside the living space, secured from rolling/flying around.

They are designed to release gas as temps rise.

Agreed. Those bottles are made of mild steel I guess and they rust out very quickly. We use a six pound bottle strapped on the rail.
