Re: 1989 Hunter 40 - A million questions.

Good luck, Steve. Diesel leaks suck. We had a leak on our way down to Florida. It turned out that the fuel boost pump was the culprit. We replaced it in Port St. Joe, but then had a banjo fitting leaking by the time we made Carrabelle. Both problems were in a hard to see/get to spot. I'm not sure how the diesel gets into the bilge, but it seems that is the first place you'll see it. It goes without saying, don't pump it overboard. Oh, and don't have diesel in you bilge if you come to Florida. They will bust you for it, if you get boarded.

No diesel smell below is a good thing.
