Propane Systems on Your Boat Seminar

Propane and butane, also known as LPG (Liquified Petroleum Gas), are the most common cooking fuels used on boats. While efficient, cost effective, and widely available, these fuels can also be dangerous. This seminar gives you the tools you need to use propane fuel safely on the water. It explains boat propane systems, propane safety, and how to keep your boat and crew safe. Students receive a detailed student guide, with a glossary, inspection checklist, and standard operating plan for what to do when there is a leak.

What’s Included?

  • How LPG works
  • Components of a typical bulk delivery system, what they do, and how they work together to deliver fuel to appliances
  • Risks of using LPG and how to mitigate them through prevention—how to inspect and maintain your LPG system, test for leaks and locate them, operate your LPG appliances safely
  • What to do in an LPG emergency

This seminar will not teach you how to install or repair an LPG system. Those tasks should only be performed by technicians certified by ABYC (American Boat and Yacht Council) in marine LPG systems.
