Hi Mary,
Dont despair if you want to keep your gas unit. I fitted a fabricated stainless steel tube that fits ito the existing recess for the gas bottle.With a welded in elevated 'floor' to raise the gas bottle to permit draining via a standard brass hose fitting and a length of fuel hose(better fire resistance)leading to a skin fitting I had in the transom. Whole unit is secured to floor with a welded flange (two lugs would do) to fix to floor of locker. A push fit lid with bent rod handles is held down by closed locker lid. Standard bulkhead gas fitting in wall of tube accepts flexible from regulator and external armoured hose (see Compass catalogue)fixed down the outside of tube to base and across to pick up solid gas pipe at bottom inside of locker. Big advantage of this is whole is easily removed if access to inner transom required.
Note tube cab be painted / galvanised steel. Leak detector can be in bottle store area or external gas detector can be used( see Compasss again).
Hope this may help. Mail me for more details if req.
Paul
