                How do I post pictures? We got the lower unit fixed. The spare lower unit was full of metal and gunk and no good. Found a serviced one as I found out a truly rebuilt lower unit would have been extremely expensive. So this morning, loaded everyone up to out this morning. Pulled the boat on ramp and as it tilted GAS started coming out of the bilge! This is our DAy 2 experience on our lovely boat. We noticed that there was a screw missing from gas tank, so we replaced the gasket and added the screws and yes we properly aligned the gasket with top. I think it's a leak. Can anyone tell me how to check this or what a "real"mechanic will be looking for without bsing me. This is serious now. I have kids and gasonline is a problem.

                      Thanks Ed. Welcome too. I see you are a fiberglass guru. Interested in speaking with you once I get the gas issue resolved.

                            to post pictures the best way is to open up a photobucket account. Upload your pictures. How you do that is look for the link that sais IMG copy and past it to your message. leave a space or two between txt and your picture.

                            You said you noticed a screw missing in your fuel tank? Where at? The only screw I can imagine is around your sending unit. You may need a new fuel tank.

                            These questions are more suited for projects or discussion. You will get more responses
