    As mentioned, the tank is the least of your worries.

    As I've posted before, my cousin had his boat explode under him as he ignited the stove for breakfast.

    The bilge had filled with propane, it blew the sole upwards and smashed him into the ceiling.

    The propane tank was unaffected.

    That was almost a decade ago, he hasn't recovered from the burns and other injuries yet. He hates life now.
