Fuel smell my Watkins 27

We just purchased a 27 foot Watkins Sailboat with a Yanmar inboard Diesel engine. After taking the boat out, the fuel smell is really strong, especially at night when we are sleeping on the boat. It does not seem like a leak. I have seen so posts talking about better ventilating the cabin. Any suggestions on how best to do this? Also, I've also seen a couple of suggestions on soaking up the fuel in the bilge? Any other suggestions? I am worried about the health effects, thank!
