gas locker

Post by tamsin »

The Calor 4.5kg gas bottles on my K26 Tamsin are at present fitted into the aft locker there is no gas tight locker or gas drain facility. I fitted a new cooker before this problem became apparent.
Any suggestions.

I am not totally familiar with the 26 in this area but if theres room in the locker can you construct a box in there that can be vented through the transom? on my K30 I keep the gas bottles on the sidedeck alongside the aft cabin, I have attatched eyes there and use a ratchet strap, and keep two4.5s there, I used to have a white PVC cover from a caravan which looked okay, this is now gone, I keep looking at large plastic storage boxes, the GRP bins on the front of caravans, for a neater solution but safety wise the sidedeck option is safe and pactical.
I have owned my Kingfisher 30 Mk2 Wastrel of Mochras since 1992 . This year I am refitting her.
