Re: Fuel tank longevity
To all who replied (so far),
Thank you for sharing your collective wisdom. Sounds like keeping a dry bilge, protecting the tank from bolts and other things that will turn the tank into a "battery" along with regular inspection all define optimal standard operating procedures.
I did pull our tank a few years ago and it looked great. The former owner did install hemicylindrical pvc to keep it from moist surfaces.
I'll take another look at it before I shove off for 8 months.
I'm curious what sort of camera is used to conduct inspections. Is it fiber optics?
Again - thanks to all of you who shared your wisdom and this message is NOT intended to stop the thread. I'd love to hear more - if there's more to tell.
