Leaking Fuel Tank

Hi all, looking for some advice on what to do/cost etc - opened the bung on the rib to empty any water and petrol came out which wasnt there before so i assume the internal fuel tank has a leak. How would this be fixed and is it a seriously expensive job? Thanks!!

I had the same experience once - turned out the filler pipe was leaking "during filling) and the spillage was getting into the bilges. How much petrol came out?
It could be the line going to the engine either?

If it's the tank, you're fooked
