Re: Replacing Fuel Tank in E32

How is the tank replacement project coming, Andy?

I've been away from my boat for about a month and came back to dead dead batteries. Dadgummit. They were about 7 years old, though, so it's a good time to replace them and get the solar charging setup I've been procrastinating......once it cools back down a bit.

Re: Replacing Fuel Tank in E32

Hey there, Andy!

Well... The newly manufactured Florida Marine Tank (original mfg) arrived last week- and I am awaiting final install as I write this.... In the meantime we have been busy taking down walls and ceiling panels, re-bedding the bowsprit, winches, and other leaky items...replacing the cabin lights with LED's, and other "stuff"...

I am hoping to get her in the water in the next week or so and have hopefully 2 full months with her this season....

Oh yeah- we have new cushions just waiting to be installed...

I will post pics once we get her in the water...

Hope you are well and sounds like 7 years is a ripe old age for a battery- (which is one of the last things I need to buy...)

Cheers!

Re: Replacing Fuel Tank in E32

Hi - I am about to undertake replacing the fuel tank in my newly acquired 1981 E32. It looks like this was done once before, cut lines filled in with varnish running from the aft floor hatch to the engine compartment. Can anyone shed some light on the best way to take up the teak parquet without destroying it? I am guessing the parquet has to come off first giving access to however the fiberglass floor section was reattached - screws I hope! Any hints or suggestions on how to attack this would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Cal

Re: Replacing Fuel Tank in E32

I would bet the floor section that was removed previously is supported by wood blocks on each side that are screwed into the adjacent framing, as that is how I found minde when I bought it. You can use a mirror and flashlight to look under the floor to see how yours is attached.

Re: Replacing Fuel Tank in E32

We replaced our tank last year- It was fun... I have a bunch of pics that I will post a link to in the next few days- have been meaning to do this for awhile now... in the meantime here's a couple-

The parquet does come off pretty easily. We found that parts of it were screwed down (look for the plugs). On ours there was a .0125" luan (or similar marine grade) sub-floor; then the fiberglass. We put masking tape over the parquet "tiles" before lifting them to help keep them together for putting them back- it helped; but it was still a puzzle getting them back in (and glued down).

Technically we still need to finish/re-finish the floor as we have some missing trim pieces, etc-

Like I said I will get some addl pics posted asap...

HTH!
