Rain dog there is no midship helm seat. There is a port and stbd lazarette but they are not vented. Actually I think they into the engine compartment.

What about under the helm seat?

Your surveyor would have come unglued if he'd looked at my Omega 36. The anchor locker/propane locker are the same compartment.

I agree with your comments but I believe for 3 years following that survey my insurance came with a clause that I would store nothing but propane in the propane locker.

I wonder why? I can understand a concern of something knocking a valve off a propane tank causing a leak, but simply having something in the same compartment isn't a risk that I can see.

It's the logical place to store a gas tank. Remote from the rest of the vessel, vented/drained to outside.

Perhaps it was just the surveyors opinion.

The propane locker is the obvious place to store a gasoline tank but according to our insurance surveryor the propane locker should only store propane. If you choose to store gasoline in your propane locker make sure the gasoline tank is not in the locker when you have the boat surveyed. The propane locker should store only propane, no gasoline, no oil, no hydraulic fluid ...... propane only.

Re: PSC 37 Where do you store your dink fuel tank?

I was storing our fuel tank the same way until 3 years ago I bought a 3 gallon flat tank along with the hose and adapter at West Marine. The new tank fits nicely in the propane locker, lies flat. Yes you lose 3 gallons of fuel but it solves the problem.
Hope this helps

I can't figure out a good place to store my 6 gallon fuel tank when not in use. Presently I tie it over the stern lazarette but this prevents quick emergency access; stern anchor, propane shutoff. Where do you store yours?
