I have a JH performance 2100 and I was thinking about moving my trolling motor batteries out of my center console and installing them under deck in front of my gas tank. I would cut a hole in front of my center console and install a hatch for access to batteries. Normally a ice chest will be on top of this hatch. By code can I legally do this? Can batteries be install under deck in the same air space as the gas tank?

Thanks in advance.

I don't know if there is any code concerning batteries and gas tank occuping the same space. What would concern me is you would be moving the batteries towards the bow which is a rougher ride. Not good for battery life.

IMO - Live bait and batteries should be kept in the stern, smoothest ride. DJ
