I just bought this boat and it looks like there is gas leaking in the hull, not sure if it is coming from tank or hose fittings ...does anyone know if this is a common problem or if it is a metal tank or aluminum ? how hard is it to get to tank if needed to be replaced?
Thanks Glenn

For any fuel leak for a hull with a below deck tank:

Open inspection ports and check fuel hoses and clamps. There are at least 3 hoses: Fill, vent and supply.

If the hoses are original or don't say "alcohol resistant" they need to be replaced.

As for the tank, Do a pressure test (3 psi) you can determine if the tank has a leak.
