Hello Folks -
I am considering storing a 5 gallon plastic diesel
jerry can below deck
in the same area where my permanent metal fuel tank
is installed. The jerry can is the type with a 'pull trigger' handle as well as a secondary push button on the valve, both of which have to be engaged to pour fuel
Is it unsafe to store this below deck
? It is well braced, but even if the boat were to heel heavily and the can tilt, is this an unreasonable risky thing to do? What about from the standpoint of temperature stability (the area is not climate controlled so could range from 70 degrees to over 100 degrees on a hot summer day.
