im guessing you mean huntdeck on the very rear of the boat? if so its not a gas tank, its just a part of the boat that has its own purpose like getting in boat alot easier when wading because its lower to the water and the main purpose is that its a perfect place to have for a dog platform. our dogs hunt from there and they are out of the boat and its easier to get em back on the boat back there and they wont get everybody wet inside the boat. underneath that is open and i hide my battery and bilge pump underneath to keep out of the way. its also nice because on a scissor blind the motor is 18" further back and all the way out of the blind. i could go on and on of the reasons why i like the huntdeck. my gas access is inside the front extended deck along with a dual bank charger and my trolling motor battery. to fill up the tank if you look in the picture of the front deck you will see a black circle cap that screws off and i have access to the tank.

here is whats underneath the huntdeck


Gotcha.

I really like that hunt deck, the benefits are great. Especially extending the motor back, and the storage underneath.

Awesome, looks great. I only have a tig available but will look for a mig. Tig welding it would take forever. Great job on the boat! You have inspired me to start a project next year!

You got skills!
