I have model year 2000  42,  hull number 27. I bought it in 2007  from the 
original owner and I have 2 propane tanks stored in the false stack  with a 
quick throw valve when one goes empty. I think this was installed at the  
factory in 2000 at the request of the original owner. I can see the hose going 
 straight down between the tanks and it disappears into the deck. Not 
really sure  how it is routed to my Force 10 stove, but  I sure like this

I have a  locker on the lazzerette deck that holds the propane.  The locker 
is open  at the bottom and any propane leaks out and drains through some 
large  scuppers.  I also have an invertor and it works well.   Located  on the 
port side above 6 6v golf cart batteries. 
I can send  picture of any part you would find useful.

Several  people that are interested in buying my boat and moving it north 
are asking  where the propane tank would be stored on a 42?. My boat has an 
electric  stove/oven and a big generator but apparently the boats that were 
delivered to  northern buyers had a propane system. These potential buyers 
would like to  convert to propane. I understand that propane is heavier than 
air so the tank  must be able to vent overboard. 

Another  question involves installing an inverter. I have heard that NT's 
are pre wired  for this. I know that I have some spare wire curled up in the 
engine room that  runs up to the panel. Would an inverter be a major  job?
