Rusted aluminum fuel tanks

Postby Kkcarroll » February 26th, 2014, 10:22 pm

We have a1996 430 Carver. We believe the previous owners knew there was issues with the fuel tanks but did not disclose. We took out the starboard tank, found several rust pin holes. We cant remove the port unless we take engine out. So my question is there a bladder or something we can put inside the tanks without having to remove?

Fuel tanks are usually baffled so a bladder inside won't work. I would do it right and pull the motor unless you can find another solution.
