Inboard tanks

I have recently had a problem with an inboard fuel tank and water ingress. Can anyone suggest any points to inspect on inboard fuel tanks, what to look for etc.

If anybody suggests checking the cause of my problem then I'll make a donation to the SOC or any other charity they mention.

I make no bones about the fact that I am still learning, so all suggestions are most welcome

regards

Stuart

RIBase
I was always warned about condensation forming inside the tank and therefore to keep tanks full.
Dunno if that helps?

That's good info, but it wasn't the problem.
