I found a great marine plumbing supply in the marina in la Rochelle.
He has a kit of 3 adapters that will convert your system to almost
any gas supply. i used this while i was in europe. for the trans
atlantic trip i decided to convert to propane.i found it very easy
to convert from butane to propane.
i removed the wood butane rack, tanks , and regulator also the "T"
connector at the solenoid. i added a adapter that i purchased in
home depot from "i think 1/4 inch" pipe thread at the solenoid to
the hose that connects to a trident wall mount regulator. i mounted
the regulator to the underside of the top of the gas locker. from
there i used a single hose to either of my 2 tanks. a 20 and 10
pound aluminum tank. I do not like the idea of having both tanks
hooked up at once . when you run out of gas you are 100 % out if
both are hooked together. i prefer to switch to a new tank manually.
we crossed the atlantic with 5 crew including a professional chef-
who cooked too much- on less than 10 lbs of propane.

months ago. The plywood rack that holds the butane bottlesunscrews
into its component parts. The base is lightly glued into place andcut a
piece of 3/4 inch plywood to match the base of the locker, withtwo
cut-outs to hold the base of the tanks.the
electric shut-off valve. I solved this by purchasing a connectorplus
a couple of hose clamps from a propane supply store. This involvedme
cutting off the connector from the butane hose and replacing itwith
the purchased connector.and
it requires the air tube gap at the gas jet, be adjusted from 6mmof
propane versus the Amel supplied 12 lbs. of butane.
