Funny.. (well to me it is) and! I must admit, I was reluctant to let go too! but sometimes you just gotta... let go that is :D

lately on the sailing forums and even in my YC, people are finding leaky fuel and or water tanks. most are metal. most are old. most were not made by the boat builder, Most need replacement. :hammer

Things we don't hesitate to replace for example; fuel filters, belts, hoses, halyards, sheets, blocks, mates? Yet when we find a leaky tank.. Oh! woe is me! making multiple posts about fixing them,, getting them cleaned etc,, yet the cost of new tanks is so very low in comparison! :rolleyes:



my old tank is going to become two alum. rectangular planters soon.

Mine has already been changed out! 2 weeks now! even the diesel smell is gone! Loving my boat even more now! Well.. sniff...sob... I loved that old tank too. but out with the old in with the new.. We were armed with sawzalls, prybars, and extra hands, turns out.. the tank came up and out the lazertte, all we did was cut the filler tube off. New one is nice poly, even the new sending unit works on the old guage.
