    Fuel Tank removal and installation by BT Welding of Titusville.  These are my go-to guys as they have done so many custom welding projects for me of the years.

    New center console selection:  

    Decided to go away from the toilet seat style as it was tremendously difficult to work with when installing or replacing electronics.  it took up a lot of deck space as I typically brought a cooler and now the cooler will be the seat and the console will be the back rest.   The new smaller console is also removable for future maintenance or upgrades as I installed it with SST latches inside the four corners attached to a starboard base. This also gives it a hardware free look from the outside.   I transferred the OEM Maverick console hatch door to the new console and added a large font face hatch door as well.

    I found old unused harnesses, removed the trolling motor harnesses and other unused conductors while replacing with new conductors.  This lightened the load a bit.

    Self bailing deck drains reworked

    the self bailing deck drains consisted of a PVC Sleeve from the inside deck, thru the rod locker and out the lower hull topsides capped with a SST clam shell.  The PVC sleeve was loose and would rotate, slide out and worst of all, allow water into the hull.  We addressed this by removing the entire assy and replacing it with a rubber hose, outside scupper and inside SST flanged hose fitting.   I dont have before pics but here are after and finally the boat is fully sealed in this area. 





    Old pics of drains, unsealed on inside or outside, just a pvc sleeve with a clam shell.

    No coating, just aluminum.  Must be a reflection in the photo.

    The fuel tank seems to always be a weak point in all boats. Not sure why they do not protect them better with a rubber coating and then foam or something that will prevent corrosion. Had a friend that has an old Hewes 16 that just leaked from a corroded tank. On the other hand I vaguely remember that the maker of Shaeffer Boats in Tampa went an extra mile to cover and prevent tank corrosion. Wish I could remember all he did.
    Beautiful job!!!

    OK just been slammed with work and travel so no new pics yet.  I did drop the boat off at my favorite local mechanic (Adam at Melbourne Discount Marine) to button up areas outside my skill level.  If all goes well may get it back on the water next week for the first time in close to a year.  Then we start the cosmetic upgrades.

    Here's the best info I've seen yet about prepping a fuel tank (coal tar epoxy sealing) before installation - and a few words about NOT foaming in a fuel tank....
