Re: Seafarer 38 fuel tank replacement

Sorry about the delay still investigating .oh well it would seem the tank measures 60"lx19"w at top 14" wide at bottom and 18" tall.the tank lays inside the fiberglass water tank on 3 sides about 1" below cabin sole and 6" beyond edge of dinnete so the only way out is to cut cabin sole and part of dinnete .after consid.other options i have decided to cut tank out.and sand blast outside and apply a heavy layup of epoxy cloth and west sys epoxy saving the est cost of 900.oo for a new tank.the tank will be easy part putting the boat back together will be not so easy! Balsa cored sole and ireg shapes for dinete.any one have exp. With such a project i am gratefull for any input. Allso have engine out am installing rebuilt 4.108
and new shaft cutless bear pss shaft seal.
