    Hi I am new to the Monsun 31 and just bought a used one in Sweden. Could you tell me more about your gas installation, where do you hide the bottles and if your Force 10 is gimballed.

    • Hi John,
      congratulation on buying this great boat. We have two Worthington horizontal aluminum 5kg bottles on the deck, screwed to a teak rack, which is bolted though the deck (well sealed, no leaks). A flexible hose leads forward to a through-deck fitting and then back to the stove. Our stove is not gimballed, but we have installed extra large railing around the stove, which can hold our pressure cooker or a cattle even in quite bad weather. Works like a charm! Let us know if you have any more questions 😉
      Good luck
