you would need to be careful putting one on some chinese boats, the insurance may not be happy you are doubling the value of the boat by adding a 15 part.

Well, I did specify some boats, I'm sure not all are bad.

Handful of decent Chinese built ribs knocking about, just a case of picking wisely or pay your money and take your chance.

Glad to see you guys and girls took that in good humour !!! spoilt my thoughts as I thought those ribcrafts were faultless ,
anyway I did have the same problem on my Canadian sports boat ,turned out to be a blocked air vent which vented integral under the cap ,was full of white chrome plating which had flaked off ,was like a petrol shower when it blew ,especially if you did,nt put the petrol pump nozzle right in

I think the problem is that the filler is quite low down on the console, so the filler pipe is relatively short. There's hardly any warning that the tank is full before it splashes back. You can listen & hear the fuel gurgling up the filler pipe, but you need quiet & cat like reactions.
