So I went to check on the boat recently and found a bilge full of fuel (gasoline) - UGH!!!! The marina contracted with a company to pump it out the next morning (at considerable expense to me), and one of the techs identified a small hole in the Stbd tank due to corrosion.
It's my understanding that, unlike diesel tanks, gas tanks can't be repaired/patched, so it looks like I'll need new tanks made. So, I'm looking for suggestions for: 1) someplace that will fabricate new tanks and 2) a yard to do the work.
After reading various boating forums, it sounds like I may have two options: Either cut the tanks apart (after purging of course) and replace with a series of smaller tanks, or pull both engines and R&R the old tanks with similar new ones. Either way, this looks to be a large project.
The boat is a 1985 40' Sundeck, and I'm located in the Puget Sound region. The boat should still be usable running on the one good tank via crossover valves, so I can travel.
Any and all suggestions welcome, thanks in advance!
I'll cross post this on the forum as well as the Facebook page.
