HI everyone

   My Port fuel tank is leaking.!!!   Looking at the cabin and bilge area, It seems like I could get it out thru the cabin???   Unscrewing the floor under the Bunk beds?

Would this work?  Has anyone done a replacement?

Can I chop it up,  it has about 5 gallons of fuel in it, Maybe less or none, by the time I get there next week, 

So Far starboard seems fine, but also looks like I could get that out from the cabin..  No way they can come out the engine area, they are 125 gallon tanks and original... tag said 1985.

I want to replace it with smaller tanks that I can access and put in from the cabin.Not a long cruiser boater..

Thanks all

Still working on it. I went through every inch of fuel line and ended up at the carburetor for the generator. It was leaking at the throttle shaft and mixture adjustment screw. The Walbro carb and/or carb kit is obsolete so I replaced it with a Nikki which bolted in easily after transferring the parts from the old carb. One problem solved and definitely an improvement but did not solve the problem.

There are no leaks anywhere and the bilge no longer smells like fuel but I'm convinced there is a problem with the starboard vent. I can remove the couch and access panels and see the top of the tank where the fuel fill line and vent lines attach. No leaks but inside that compartment there is a strong fuel smell. I haven't been able to see the end of the vent line or inspect the vent nozzle where it exits the hull yet.

Hopefully I can start on that tomorrow.
