    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Describes gas burning installations in boats, and other vessels up to 500 tons, of domestic systems using liquefied petroleum gases from cylinders, operating at a pressure of 28 mbar for butane and 37 mbar for propane. Excludes the use of liquefied petroleum gas for the propulsion of craft. Gives guidance on the selection of materials, appliances and components, design and installation requirements, inspection and testing instructions. Appendix A gives basic user guidance on safe practice for inclusion in the instructions. Does not cover the installation of bulk or portable LPG.
