Re: Irwin 28 head help
Just food for thought....regarding your fuel tank, I don't know how big your engine is, how big your fuel tank is or how much motoring you plan on doing. If I ever replace my tank, it will be for a smaller one. Reason...I've never used a full tank of fuel in one season.
My first sailboat that I had for 4 years had a 15 gallon tank. I never used more than 8-9 gallons in a season. The boat I now have has a 25 gallon tank. My first season, I did do two long trips and I may have used 20 gallons for the season. Haven't used more than 12-15 gallons a season since. Point I'm making, I always have old fuel in my tank because it never gets used up.
