Jerry cans

Got these free from a guy at work. Mint apart from surface rust on base. Sanded back, applied rust treatment, acid etch prime and grey primer. Will paint olive green next week. Planning to apply some sort of rubber base to the bottom of them. Anyone carry these types of fuel tanks on board?

I have 50 litres on board, but on long hauls it's nice to have more.

Plastic is much better, the metal ones soon rust once the salty stuff has been on it. Also plastic is a lot kinder to the deck if it's choppy :thumbup:

Agreed. If those Jerrys move at all when full, they'll play havoc with GRP work, unless they're very well protected.

Thought as much, but got them free so they owe me nowt. Looks like they'll go into storage until I buy a tractor when I retire (still 20 years away)!

If you have a non-slip deck finish, metal kans will kill it, plastic kans will wear through. Either way some heavy rubber matting will help to protect deck & kan. Personally I wouldn't have metal kans on the boat, they're ok for running fuel from the garage & that's it. These are the dogs whatsits
