RE: Gas

If I should ever paint it, I will likely opt for a navy blue hull. If for no other reason, the fact that I like yours so well. Or black.

Dark green is nice too!

This may get interesting when you are south of about 20N.

RE: Gas

I probably shouldn't, but I carry it in the aft cockpit. It's open to the air and it does have drains though. I only carry a gallon and I only recently bought the dinghy and motor. I might have to think about it.

RE: Gas

I carry at minimum one 6 gallon plastic outboard can on the cockpit deck. Sometimes either a 3 gallon outboard container and/OR a 5 gallon plastic jerry jug full. All 2 cycle gas all containers tied in place when underway.

This boy has no interest in boating below 48N, so all is well. Chances are the hull will remain white anyway.

What brand of davit is that?* I am starting to look for a setup that can safely keep a dinghy and motor in the ready to launch position. I would like to do it with a 11' Dinghy and 9.9hp motor if at all possible

The only gasoline on my boat is in an eleven gallon seat tank built into my dinghy, which is held upright on the davits. But honestly, I would be happy to carry a can in my cockpit or swimstep. I would not however carry it on the flybridge, as it would get into places not desired if a leak occurred. I also wouldn't carry it in the cabin or engine room.[img]download.spark?ID=1055189&aBID=115492[/img]

It's a custom davit I designed and had built. It's totally manual, and supporting a relatively heavy ten foot dink with a fifteen horse honda. Total wieght is about 450lbs with fuel.*

RE: Gas

Simpson Laurence has SS davits that will carry a large dink and motor load.

They can be mounted in an optional deck shoe , so can be struck when not needed.
