    Hey Rob,

    Yes, I'm on Bloody Decks, same screen name. Good eye on the deck plate. I was worried about that too. The tank came with a raw fiberglass edge on the base. Normal permanent mounting requires a bead of caulk around the base to prevent water intrusion. Since I designed the installation to be removable, it's an issue I had to trouble shoot. If you look closely at the base, I installed some white marine c-channel weather stripping all the way around and sealed the seam. This prevents most water intrusion. What little can get underneath is just seepage because of the anti skid. The deck plate is mounted and sealed 1/2" above the level of the deck preventing the seepage from getting on the fuel tank. I sprayed all around it with a hose for 20 min. and the checked the tank, it was dry as a bone. I will keep and eye on it though, I have no desire to do a tank replacement.

    Ken
