stinky storage

Our PS 40 has a strong chemical smell in the aft storage area under the port settee. It is the area through which both the fill hose and fuel vent hose run. I don't think the smell is diesel, but it may be. To me and others, it has a strong plastic odor, but in any case, the area is not suitable for storing anything that would absorb odor. I've thought about replacing the vent and fill hose, but am not sure that would solve the issue.

Also, the fuel tank fills very slowly, often to the frustration of the attendant at the fuel dock, or the crews on other boats waiting for me to finish.

Anyone have suggestions to the cause of the issues?
