Hiya, not sure if I'm allowed to post this as it's for a customer - but I'm only after advice, it's not advertising so hopefully ok.
We've been asked to adapt a Humber console to allow easier access to the fuel tank. The access at the moment is to slide out it of the side, which they don't really like. Their previous boat had a hinged seat so they could lift the tank out from the top, and they've asked us to adapt the Humber to allow the same thing.
However ... nothing is ever easy. The workshop have measured the fuel tank and realised it won't actually fit through the top of the seat. It's a standard 25l tank so I think we'd struggle to get a slimline one which would fit.
Before they start cutting holes in anything, I was just wondering if anyone else has this problem and what other Humber users do ? Do you just put up with skinned knuckles when sliding it in & out, or is a jiggle pipe the way to go (I have a suspicion they might have rules about filling tanks in the boat, but not going to rule it out just yet) ?
Any ideas welcome !
