I know I'm gonna get flamed, so to speak, for this question but here goes anyway.
I'd like to know of any safer/safest way I may be able to keep a few gallons of gas in a container in my boat. It's a 20' bowrider Regal I/O with alot of storage
space in the rear on either side of the engine
( and not much elsewhere) While it is well compartmentalized to keep stuff from sliding around too much, it's all one "airspace" under the hatch
that runs almost from one side to the other. Of course it's fairly well ventilated as mandated by law, but still a closed compartment, with an engine
in it. Well, the airspace is actually contiguous with everything under the deck
but you get the idea, so would the ski locker be any better a location?
I've seen the round "safety cans" and the military style rectangular ones, but is this just a path I need not to go down?? It would be nice to have 3-5 gallons in reserve just in case, but...
A reserve fuel
switch would be nice, too, but probably difficult to retrofit in an existing tank.
