It sounds like the PO knew the tank was leaking! Diesel is not really explosive or dangerous but it is not something you want to be dumping or leaking into the water. EPA=$$$$$$!

Why don't you find a local person that knows such systems and ask them to help you learn how to change fuel filters and do routine maintenance? Pay someone if you have to. you really need to know these things. Runs and cuts out may very well be clogged fuel filter/s I don't know the engine model but I'm guessing it's a 18 -20 hp model. for a 30ft boat.
good luck
