Re: Fuel tank longevity

With the inspection plate off, it's easy to use a handheld or point & shoot type camera to get pictures of the internal tank sections, as Al mentioned. For the external undersides, I use a scope or snake type camera. The one I have is from Costco, and shoots still images and video. It costs around $100 and extends to 3' and is extendable to 6'. It's also water resistant to 9' or so, if memory serves. They can also be found at stores like Home Depot, Lowes, AutoZone, etc. It's proven to be very handy on the boat.
