Extra gas tank storage location?

Postby craig on Tue Jul 20, 2021 10:20 am


Was curious how you guys stored extra gas on board. I have been using a 1 gallon plastic container pushed all the way against the transom, but it gets wet when it rains, or when I splash back on board after swimming. Too bad I can't store it in the cabin or lazarette compartment, but from everything I have read, that would be risky/DANGEROUS in case it spilled. I am considering the 1.5L gas bottles used for motorcycles or when camping. That would give me one extra fuel tank as a backup. I could store this in the open-sided storage compartment in the seat backs above the lazarettes (whose name escapes me!).
