    Aluminum Gas Tanks

    JB Weld Fix update. Our patch is holding,(yes only two months), but no evidence of any fuel leakage. Grandson did good job of putting it all back together and has had it out on 6 trips. We'll keep an eye or nose on it of course....but for the moment it's run it and fish it. Hope everyone has a great new year.

    Who did your Push pole platform support. I like the simple functionality. Very Classy. Also the baitwell paint.....what brand, did you brush apply of spray? There's a lot of thought in what your doing. Thanks

    bilge hatch access

    Had to trim 3/4 inches off of front of hatch bottom..........think I paid $40ish at local store. I set it hinged to stern. Replacing all pumps etc while it's wide open, but will be able to access all much better than the factory pie plate. Gotta love a Dremel.

    Aluminum Gas Tanks

    So we cut the fiberglass vertical riser which gave us limited access. You can see the foam creeping around the front. When we scraped it off note that it had removed whatever coating they used on the tank in 1985. Also of note, and as mentioned by many others, in well ventilated, non foamed areas the coating is in place and still doing it's job of protecting the aluminum. We abraded and cleaned the two screw holes and patched with original JB Weld. Filling up the tank and a water test to see if these two holes were the problem is next............wish us luck.
