Re: Diesel tank repaired on Gulf 32
Rhapsody, good luck with it all. As I touch on in my blog, the decision to repair the tank in situ was driven by the cost and horror of trying to remove it and install a new one. If an easier option, I would consider replacement. Although, having said that, I feel my tank is now absolutely as good as new, and even better because I have access hatches fore and aft and middle. The new aluminum plate I put into the bottom is thicker than the original tank, and the Flamemaster sealant will last practically indefinitely.
As much of a PIA as it was, it is enormously satisfying and reassuring to have it done. To no longer have to worry about any crud in my tank, and to not have any diesel smell, or overflow, is all quite wonderful.
