I hope you glued those rubber strips to the tank with 5200 adhesive.

As I watch Carl's progress it is amazing to see the craftmanship he has put into this 32. It is going to be much better than factory when he gets done. He does everything the right way the same as he would at work for Westinghouse on a power plant. He doesn't get in a hurry. I couldn't even pull him away to go for a boat ride and dinner. It has been a educition being on the same dock . Nice guy.

Glad to see you're retaining those Perkos--darn good unit. I use a small mason jar to drain them and check for water/ crud.

When I changed the gages in mine, I deliberately set them up so there was at least 10 gallons of gas in the tanks on 'E'. I know; it's only a psychological thing, but it helps when the marina is a long way off.
