I used up enough fuel in both tanks till the sum total of fuel in both tanks would fit in one tank. Then I transfered the fuel to one tank. Cut access holes with a hole saw (minimum 6") in each baffles section. Took a scraper and scraped out all the big stuff. Then used windex and a scotch brite pad till I had the entire tank shiny. It worked but it was very akward getting to the entire tank. Took some real wierd yoga positions. LOL

Fair Winds,


Between us there was, as I have already said somewhere, the bond of the sea. Besides holding our hearts together through long periods of separation, it had the effect of making us tolerant of each other's yarns -- and even convictions. Heart of Darkness
