Propane locker paint started


 When Debbie painted the refer she also painted the propane locker (PPL). We had only enough pain to do the inside of the locker. It will also need a second coat, the whole propane locker once the first is finished.


I had to do a little touch up sanding first

PPL ready for paint

First coat on the inside


 Because we have so much to do yet under the cockpit sole we are in not any big hurry to finish this project as it is of the lower priority type. A little movement is always good and the paint job has kind of been holding up the rest of the inside guts getting installed. Once we have the PPL painted we can start installing the regulator etc. Also the shelf needs a change of brackets but first the refer components need installing. It will be easier than removing the PPL all the time to do work.


 We also filled the composite PP tank. It took 2.89 gal. So with both filled we will have almost 6 gal of PP. Should last a good while. The tank filled is a bit heavier than we had imagined. Glad we went with the two composite tanks instead of one 5 gal tank. It will be much easier to handle on a buss in Mexico and in the dingy.



We are mounting the composite PP tank on the stern and have sold the #6 aluminum tank along with Mr Heater to a dock mate. It is a bit heavy when full for mounting on the rail (the composite tank full).  You can see the #6 aluminum tank on the rail under the Sunbrella cover we made for it. We also made the bracket that holds the tank to the rail. Sold them along with the heater etc.
