That is one of the most egregious examples of poor design and construction by boatbuilders.
It's a disaster waiting to happen.
All of those screens should be removed.
What a shame that builders kept doing it. Think about it: inaccessible, usually unknown to skippers, a completely stupid move even before any questions about fuel stability ever surfaced.
Any submariner coulda told 'em: DON'T do it!
Wanna know how I really feel about it?
