LPG gas can be filled in Alice Town. There is a tanker truck parked at the very southern end on town by the beach. If there is no one around to fill it, walk back to town and stop at the very first liquor store (it has no sign, but is white building across from Big John's store) and ask for Big Fred. He will come down and fill it for you.13USD to fill an 8lb bottle.

Working hours customs. Please note that, per March 2015, the customs officers are working 7 days a week from 0900 to 1900hrs (at least what we experienced at Bimini). Clearing at North Bimini only at the Big Game Fishing Club. As mentioned in the posting, all very efficient and effective. No boarding of vessel (well not ours).
