Re: [campernicholson] Gas Cylinder Storage
- Simon,I am also looking at installing a new gas locker on our Nic36. Have a look at the Calor Gas web site in the UK:- http://www.calormarineshop.co.uk/ They have some useful installation information and a shop.They recommend that the gas locker is NOT vented into the cockpit but directly overboard.Regards,David----- Original Message -----From: Simon RayfieldSent: Saturday, November 22, 2003 4:00 PMSubject: [campernicholson] Gas Cylinder StorageHi allAfter reading about gas explosions on yachts in the disaster book Total Loss I thought it was about time I did something about my Gaz LPG storage. At present my gaz cylinder is still stored in the original locker cage in the bottom of the starboard cockpit locker. I have been looking at Innonautic safety storage lockers on the web at www.innonautic.nl , these look the business but are designed to be set in the deck.What do the rest of you do? and what about gas detectors as well? I recently saw a fairly new modified installation on a later layout 35 at Harwich (UK) where the locker had been recessed into the side deck with access from the cabin to switch on and off. Having a pilot berth this isn't practical for me and I'm looking for a cockpit locker layout with a drain into the cockpit in case of a leak.Statistics show that a gas explosion on a boat is normally terminal for the boat and also the occupants if they are in it!!Now that I have moved from the Med to the North Sea I am also looking at heaters but not those that rely on battery power, etc.??Don't panic........................................Simon#42 Dedioups I have also lost my sense of smell which doesn't help much!
