    Re: LNG fishing boat - my latest nut job idea

    Ya , I am talking LNG. No problem at all buying LNG in the Long Beach / los Angeles Harbor at several truck fuel stops. http://speedyfuelinc.com/ http://alternative-fuel.findthedata....Natural-Gas/CA . A few work boats have been converted. An attendant fills only the correct type of tank, as it is cryo stuff like -260 deg f, They will not fill vehicle that is not designed to accept , special nozzles/fittings,tanks . About 20% of the transit busses and trash trucks in so cal have been using LNG for the last 10 years. The price is hard to beat. By far the cheapest fuel at this time, well under $3 for 135,000 btu. You just need to use it the same day or loose it from boil off.

      Good Idea, On board gas detection system as they use on LNG buses. I would have and explosion proof bilge blower and the switch mounted outside. But I'm just a little cautious since there is no odorant.

        it wont help a tank leak but a odorizer at the discharge of the vaporiser would stink all the gas down stream

          After all it doesn't seem to be so easy to implement on a boat, altough its energy density is better than CNG it's too dangerous and hard to handle properly.
