Re: another tank cleaning issue

I once taped a 1/2" hose to a very thin, very flexible fishing rod and vacuumed (wet/dry shop vac) the bottom of a tank through the fuel fill fitting. .. worked quite well.

The tank looks fine so don't want to replace, plus it would be a bear to negotiate it out and in. Some have implied Tank Cleaning getting a service to do it under these conditions but putting out one last shot at maybe your ship......
