Re: Scum in Fuel Tank

Yes, they are removable. The one in the picture came out in about 15 minutes, hardest part was working the fill hose off the pipe.

The tank is made of aluminum and is very well built (Pacific Seacraft has so far impressed me with the quality of their craftsmanship).

Re: I Equate it to Driving in a Bad Snow Storm!
