How deep does the foam go? The ABYC/USCG rules does not permit foam down the full sides. If you are just foaming a couple inches down from the top that is fine, but you have to leave room for the sides to expand. The approved method is to foam the corners so that both the sides and ends can expand. The sides, ends, and top must be able to expand by 3%. The second method is to use tie down straps and finally David Pascoe's method of attaching neoprene strips with epoxy to the hull and tank with epoxy.goingbogueoutdoors wrote: ↑Fri Feb 17, 2023 11:15 am Rubber finally came in for my tank area. Got tank set and foamed on both sides, as well as all the bilge area squared away. The sea chest was a bit awkward but finally was able to commit to a layout that was functional. Tank sending unit and all three rule pumps with be run together on the portside, around the transom to the rigging tube. Fuel on the starboard side, then shoots upward to the rigging tube.
Still need to pull a little bit of slack on the fill/vent tube to eliminate the low spots. Also still running bilge pump to the starboard side817495A6-4306-426B-B254-16C3F4244FB2.jpeg89B3A0A4-6BCB-4590-AF82-1E037EC719D9.jpegD49325CB-6A90-48B5-8CC2-B179A84CFB1C.jpeg
