We got the tanks
out of the boat
without too much effort. Tanks
are located under the cockpit
. Stan Huntingford did a good design in the aft cabin
(Passport 42) by making a cabinet and removable panel a few inches bigger than the width and height of one tank. There is just enough room to ease the port tank through into the cabin
, tilt on end, squeeze through the door and go up the companionway
. Starboard tank follows. I've heard horror stories about people ripping up boats to get the fuel tank
out. Thanks Stan!
I appreciate all the comments here and am applying the guidance into my tank replacement plan.
BTW, I found two Baja fuel
filters in the locker and will be posting
those in the For Sale
