Author Topic:   Condensation

If an internal tank shows condensation on the gas gage, is this a result of water in the hull of a boat or not? Is there a good possibility or is this something that just accures because of temp. change?

There's nothing unusual about water, moisture, condensation, whatever on the fuel gauge or around it. It has nothing to do with the inside of the hull but rather has to to do with the fact that the fuel tank cavity is essentially part of the bilge. There will always be water down there. You might try storing the boat without the deck plates in place to allow water to evaporate from the tank cavity as this is really the only way it can get out out.

Thanks Tom,
I do nor own the boat but was consideding it. The owner said that the condensation was on the gas gage, but I have never owned a Outrage and didn't understand if it was an issue or not. My biggest consern was water in the hull of the boat.
