Adding a Gas Locker to an Older Boat

The gas system on this boat consisted of a single Calor bottle in the lazarette, not safe and awkward to get at.

The owner had a fibreglass box of suitable dimensions for two 907 Camping Gaz bottles made(these can also be bought ready-made) and we decided to fit it in the space above the foot of the starboard quarterberth.

The hatch the owner bought was marginally too small, but with some judicious modification of the internal rim a perfect fit was achieved.
