Sometimes the bladder solution is the only way of keeping your sanity.
Has anoyne ever looked at the fuel tank on a Union 36?
Has anyone ever tried to get the tank out?
Or a new one in?
I tell you, the only way to get a new one in there is to weld the new tank in situ and you'll burn the boat down if you try, assuming you don't die of welding fumes before that.
The Union 36 did not design the fuel tank, or water tank for maintainence.
If the fuel tank leaks again, I will cut the top off it, grind down the angles, line it with carpet or neoprene, and put a big bladder in there.
I might keep my sanity then.
I wish I had modular tanks as described. I don't though, and bladders are likely to be my only move if leaks develop.
