10 lb Lite Cylendar propane tanks

Hi All,



I'm hunting 10 lb (the smaller ones) Lite Cylendar propane bottles as I have a new Dory and can't fit my 20 pounder thru the hatches. They don't make these anymore, and while I've come across the 20 pounders, the 10's I haven't seen much. Anyone got some they want to sell ?



Thanks

Here you go. Steel not composite, which I do not think are made any more.

How big is your hatch? Less than 12" most likely, so very limited selection to choose from.

Thanks !

Hey, thanks for all the replies, it looks like the viking cyl should fit the bill perfectly. I wasn't aware that they manufactured composites any more.

Worthington 11lb. purchased at Bass pro shops. This is a steel cylinder,2/3 the diameter of the full size cylinder. Works good for my cat.

Heads up on the alternative tanks. I took my Manchester five pounder to U-haul the other day and they said they were no longer allowed to fill tanks that size. Not sure why since no one knew, and they have the same valve as their big brothers, but I was told the edict came down from corporate. I went to the other places they advised me would still fill them and was turned away there as well. Finally found someone who said over the phone they "could probably fill it" but I haven't been out there yet. Guess I'll get a twenty pound tank for base camping and general use and henceforth keep the little guy filled and ready for float trips. Dadgummit.

Viking Cylinders

I got a Viking a couple years ago, but it came with already 2 years off its life. In other words, I bought it new but it needed to be re-certified in 3 years not 5 because of the old born on date and very few places re-certifiy them. I donlt even think there is a place in CO that does it. Also, it would never take a decent fill...yes, I know you can not fill up completely, but the regulator would shut down the fill way early..like 7 lbs of fuel and 2/3 full. It's light, fits in a 18x12 milk crate and is easy to stow, but the other problems are annoying especially for an expensive tank.
