Roberts 38 Offshore fuel tank size

We have a steel Roberts 38 offshore. We have down our own research and have not been able to come up with any information regarding the capacity of our fuel tank. I was hoping if someone had a boat similar they could tell us theirs. It has a 36 HP Volvo Penta engine

Re: Roberts 38 Offshore fuel tank size

Roberts designs are frequently customized by their builders. Even if you had the original plans, there is no telling - especially with the potential of anyone with an arc welder to adjust anything on board- what your fuel capacity may actually be in your steel hull. The best thing might be to pump or run the tank dry and see how many jerrycans it takes to fill it back up.
