I'm not sure why handling the gas containers to the top of the house is more dangerous than below deck storage. Actually, I can't think of too many things that would be more dangerous than below deck storage of gasoline. Is the problem that you physically would have trouble getting it up there? If you are storing your dingy on the cabin top, just leave the can in the dingy as you raise and lower it. The can may expand a bit in the sun though, but covering them will solve that problem. Do you need a ladder to the top deck? If so, I have a SS one I'll give you if you promise to stop keeping your gas below deck.
