RE: Permanent Gas Tank?




Thanks for the info. I wonder if the Coast Guard would approve of a
user-added vent system to a portable tank if they boarded and noticed it.
Anybody have any thoughts on that? Part of the attraction of the portable
vented tank is that it can be easily removed and it costs way less than
permanent tanks.

Thanks,

Mike

Sure have.  Take a look at my conversion.  It works like a charm.  I have
use of the all cockpit sole and NO fumes to suck up.
