******* The lodge owner had gone to Juneau with the injured employee to catch an air ambulance to Seattle. We were told by the lodge management team that the tank was an old diesel tank.
They had so many OB boats that it is entirely possible that it was a "gas" tank.
I believe the poor fellow was from South Carolina & the lodge owner flew back there, with the body, to address the family.
It sure put a real "funk" on the rest of our stay.
