Joie de Vivre Propane Arrangement1038 viewsIn addition to the pretty view astern, this image shows the propane arrangment aboard Joie de Vivre. To port (right side of image) is a Magma kettle BBQ under the canvas wrapping. To starboard (left side of image) is a wicker basket. Inside the wicker basket resides a five pound propane tank. A rope can be used to tie the tank to the pushpit. This has proven to be a very tidy way to carry propane on deck.
