DO NOT PUT PORTABLE GAS TANKS IN AN ENCLOSED BOX !!!

PORTABLE gas tanks will always emit fuel vapours and if you trap most of those vapours in a box you will be sitting atop a huge fireball in waiting. Keep the portable fuel tanks in an open air environment. Search for "Jerry Cans" through the archives in this & the RIBs & RIBBING forums for some alternative ideas.

It depends on the design, as you'd have to have "fresh air" anyways for the gas tank.
You have to drill a hole for the fuel line and that hole has to be big ahough to accept the primer bulb....one can always make another hole in the front of the box for even greater ventilation....

I'll post it later
As I promised, here it is.

Items required:
1. One inflatable boat.
2. One synthtic rachet tightener.

Follow the instructions from the picture below.
Use rachet to loose or tighten the support. Once tightened up, keep it that way.

Ask me for clarification if required.

Your boat must be PVC, as I can see Stabond. I used several times on my boats. I like it a lot.......or you have hypalon boat with PVC bottom?

I see you have older Johnson 15 with electrostart. Looks to be late 70's-early 80's model.
I have 1988 Johnson 15.
Here is the very nice link for the repairs and maintenance of these motors. But very likely you already know about it.

BTW the pics album is reversed, you have the latest pics last.
Hey, my boat is PVC, my Johnson is a 1976, thanks for the repair link. Was trying to find some good online info. The picture album is in order although confusing. The oldest pictures of the boat inflated on in the pool were the first day I bought it. The second day the floor fell out of it, and hence the following repairs were made.
