Mainship 36 Owners Only Question
I have a 1986 Mainship 36 and I believe the 2 gas tanks are 120 Gal capacity each. I want to make a sounding stick (graduated dip stick) for my fuel tanks. I am going to use a 7 long stick of white oak approx. ½ X Ύ and make my marks. The stick needs to be at least 6-5 to reach the bottom of the tank from the outside deck fill.
Someone told me that they think 1 = 5 gals. But was not sure. Does anyone know the actual dimensions of these tanks? I need to know the length width and height of the tanks. I also am assuming that the tanks are more or less rectangular.
If I cant find out I will have to do what I did with my diesel tank on my other boat. I ran it dry and slowly filled it 5 gals at a time and marking the stick as I went along. This is not what I want to do. LOL
