I have a fiberglass fuel tank that has been bumped and now has a small crack, but does not leak fuel. What would be the best way to repair/strengthen this area. I have considered using west sytem epoxy what do you think. Thanks for any reccomendations.

I myself would not like 27 gallons leaking into my boat while being away from land.

My suggestion is to call Pate and decribe your problem. It maybe be possible to send it directly to them and have them repair it. Also they would probably give you some sort of warrantee

I have a 1981 fiberglass 21-gallon red tank that finally gave way and sprung a leak through a hairline crack in base.

Called the manufacturer they said they could put a new bottom on the tank for $60 (I think), I ended up putting a epoxy over the tank and it has not leaked again, yet. I need to beat it up to test.

The leak left quite a oil and gas stain on my deck that took a lot of elbow grease to clean.
