Yes compatible.  Just not color correct.  Big label should do it, maybe find a diesel screw on cap in case I get old and cant remember.

Close enough!  A label would help prevent the local floating gas station from filling it with the wrong stuff...

Is the tank compatible with diesel?  Usually, they're yellow or clear if they are.  Never having had to buy a plastic diesel tank, I'm not sure what the differences are, whether a gasoline tank is compatible with diesel or not, or vice versa.

Thank you,  I bought the 30GB, I plan on putting in a portable tank outside of the cabin under a seat box.  Sceptor makes some that will work, just got to make the fuel pickup 3/16".  I read people have trouble with the 5psi EPA vent not working causing deformation so need to look into fixing that vent...

On another note, mounting the port soon and I remember reading mounting them level but need to make sure.

My condolences on the family ... sometimes putting the boat aside for a bit is the right thing to do.  Family's more important.

Which Wallas?

How did you cut the long smooth curves on the pieces of wood that the hatch is sitting on?  Do you have a bandsaw?  Really nice job in matching the shape of the cuddy roof...

I used the roof template and a jigsaw,  then used 40 grit on a semi curved sanding block to make it fit nice.  It was 1 1/4" tall when I started, when I got it to fit I trimmed it on the table saw with fence to make it slim as possible.

Not much progress though lately, Mother in-law passed Friday, spent time with  Father in-law Saturday and Granddaughter birthday on Sunday.

I did order a Wallas heater today.
