I have been helping a guy fix up a boat in his back garden. He's fitted a pressure gauge permanently to the propane line for the gas stove. The idea is that when the main solenoid valve is shut the gauge should stay steady, if it drops then there's a leak.
The gauge came from eBay, and it's leaking. So the addition of a safety feature has made the ssystem unsafe. A proper brass gauge was £12. The boat safety guys wont sign the boat off unless it has a way of checking the system. The boat also has sniffers inside.
