In this two-hour seminar, you’ll discover how to safely turn propane appliances on and off, how to check for propane leaks, how to inspect and maintain your boat propane systems, and how to use and store small propane fuel cylinders. The seminar also covers the parts of a safe marine propane system and important properties of propane and butane fuel.
