I'd like to upgrade my portable setup and have my gas in the forward hatch. I'm looking at a below deck Moeller tank and I just want to make sure I get all of my fittings in working order. I'm planning on mounting the tank on a piece of starboard that is 4200'd to the floor. Vent will be Perko thru-hull on the side, with the hose higher than the vent. Gas fill will also be Perko deck mounted. If I'm not using a gauge do I just ground the sending unit? Is there anything else I'm overlooking?

Tank:

I don’t believe the 4200 will bond to the starboard. There is a blown pvc board from Komerling that will hold adhesive and holds screws as good or better than the starboard.

Thanks BB. Everything else looks good?
Pretty much. I don’t believe you’ll need to ground the sending unit if not using a gauge, it just becomes a plug. Don’t hold me to that as I don’t have any literature in front of me to confirm.
