Vent water tank to inside bilge?

If the vent is higher than the deck fill, the vent probably would not overflow before the fill would when tanks are topped off. Have I got that right?

While I have your attention (bold assumption), does anyone know what caulk or seale rapplied from the inside to use to stop a leak in a water tank ? After 12 years of use, my tank is leaking and I traced it to a "drilling error" by some installer long ago that was plugged and has now started to leak. If the photo works, it is the black circle at the top of the tank.

That's the vent!**

Seriously - you have access to the inside of the water tank?* I would be thinking about some sort of mechanical patch or plug in combination with a sealant.

Another job for which JB Weld "Water Weld" would be the best choice. Read all about how to use it here:
