Gas Spill in water

The only way fuel can escape from an intact sunken boat is through the tank vent. Consider how easy it would be to clamp off the vent line, stop up the exit fitting, etc.
Considering the exhorbitant fines and cleanup costs they face, I don''t know why every boater does not have a quick fix that a snorkeler can implement.
