gas powered liveaboards...

hmm interesting, from what I see there are no fuel leaks on the boat, near the tank or the engine... but you can def. smell it... but prior to buying the boat, I had alot of people tell me that if I buy a gas powered sailboat, there will always be gas fumes which can be unpleasant, and unlike a car where the tank is outside, the tanks are inside the boat so the fumes collect, which is why I should always have the air bilge turned on for at least 5 minutes prior to starting up the boat...

but i''ll recheck everything and make sure there are no fuel leaks of any sort
