Wouldn't you have to take the breather quite a bit higher than the fuel tank to stop fuel from spilling out. Surly if you take the breather to the back of the boat and the fuel tank is located forward the breather would be lower or just too low....Wouldn't it! With a full tank and rough conditions could this be a problem?

Flash may not be the most appropriate word when describing a gasoline breather Chris...

Naaa, you want it where you can give it a good Sniff....Things always appear to look better after a good Sniff!

I thought about that as one solution Chris!

(But I'm glad someone else said it out loud first!)

Also thought about back of seats as we have high-backed jockeys?

Alternatively, I'll just grow to love the fragrance as Andy suggested as it could be too difficult now to ren a heavy duty hose to the back of the boat...

How about a clothes peg, your nose might resemble that of a synchronised swimmers after a while , but you wil not be able to smell the petrol fumes.

No More Fumes?

Kathleen - due to my Ahlziemers kicking in I had forgotten that we already have solved this problem years ago! If you like I will post you a picture and explanation? Might even be able to retro fit to your boat, without costing the earth !!!
