Rubber gas hose from the regulator to the bulkhead connector should be rated for LPG and marked as BS3212:1991 and also have the manufacture’s name and date on it. Many boats I come across have old pipes that are cracked and damaged such as the one in the photograph from a boat surveyed recently.
Regulators cost around £20 and the hose is around £3/m. We all know gas onboard boats can be dangerous so it is worth checking and replacing these relatively inexpensive items.
