Thanks Bob, I'll do that.

Capt Meares, good points. I drilled the holes all the way through to the outer fiberglass skin. If by mid week after the dehumidifier has been running and intermittent blow drying I still find moisture I'll just cut the top skin off and tackle it that way. Ultimately I just want it bullet proof.


Ssobol, You know there wasn't much abrasion on the bottom of the tanks. There was some along the edges though. It was hard to tell the cause, it could have been where they hit it with something right after manufacture to get the rough edges off. That's what I suspect. So you may be right, there may not be a problem there. I was hoping a little rubber between the tank and floor might help from dirt and stuff getting under there. I was planning to cut a piece of that rubber and drop it in a bucket of gasoline to see if it would hold up. Even if it does I may just skip that step and chalk up the lost $30 to a bad idea.

Finished up with the cockpit repair yesterday. All in all it was a pretty quick and easy fix just working about 4 mornings while the kids where in school. It could probably be done in a long day if you didn't have to wait for epoxy to cure. Thanks for the help here, now on to the lazarette hatches. Very Happy
