Re: Permanent Gas Tank?




Mike
Coast Guard regulations require that a gas compartment be vented down. This
usually means into the cockpit. This means any gas compartment needs to be
above the cockpit floor and sealed so fumes will vent into the cockpit and
down the cockpit drains and overboard. The San Juan 7.7 has a fuel
compartment in the cockpit That may be adapted to the 23. A floor would have
to be glassed to the lazerete just above the cockpit floor with a vent to
the cockpit. An end would have to be glassed on the end of the shelf to
contain the fumes. It can be done at the expense  of lose of use of part of
the lazerete.
