More locker space, less propane (05/2018)
On the C270 the starboard cockpit locker has a reasonable amount of
space. The port side locker, however, is entirely taken up by the
On mine the tank was too old to be filled and thus I have never used
the stove. Also never missed it, as I have a BBQ. But I kept
thinking about all that space going to waste!
So, I removed the propane tank, its holding box and the floor
underneath it. I also removed the propane hose going to the galley
and related wiring. With no propane, no use for the unused stove, so
I removed it and sold it.
The end result is I doubled the locker storage space, as now the
port locker is as large as the starboard one!!
