I wish I could post this in several location but that is just not going to happen and I do not want anyone to feel I am advertising for something or someone although I have been known ;-)
I was doing some research for my next extended float trip and found that AR&K now carries this item locally in Anch. For all of us who accomplish extended trips Fishing, Hunting and Just Rafting while using inflatable craft this is a considerable advancement in saving weight. It comes in a 10lb or 20 lbs tank. Looks like I just found room for those extra Beers!
Lite Cylinder 10# Composite Propane Tank
Visible Propane Level Fiberglass composite materials allow you to actually see how much fuel is left. No more gauges. No more guessing.
30% Lighter than Steel Composite cylinder matches steel for strength but is 30% lighter. And, the plastic housing has handles for easy carrying.
Non-Corrosive Material The plastic casing and fiberglass composite cylinder materials will never rust or corrode. They’re long-lasting and great looking.
