Thanks! This is exactly what I was looking for on the gas tank. The battery is a sealed type.

The intent is/was to have the 3.1 gallon (plastic) tank that came with the outboard sit directly to the right of it. Would having a fold down seat above the motor and tank leave enough ventilation? There would be open space forward (a light canvas curtain would pull across), and also out the 12'x11" gun ports. I could lay it out and take another picture close up?
