Default Best way to transfer gas from boat

What is the best and safest way to transfer fuel from a boat to gas cans?
Have an outboard with standard bulb and hose.

I just used a small fuel pump I got at an auto shop, takes some time if you're trying to drain a full tank but better then using a manual pump.

hook a line from suction side of pump onto the outlet side of the fuel filter and pump away. make sure to use a pump made for gasoline.
