If you smell gas strongly you may have gasoline lying somewhere and evaporating as a gas into the air in the boat. That sounds highly dangerous to me. A spark could cause ignition and an explosion in the confined area of your boat.
Can you open up safely to air the boat while you wait for the mechanic. Be careful,refueling a gas boat is high risk when there is a leak in the fuel system. Do not start engines.
This boat sounds "new to you". Did survey cover the fuel system?
I`m not sure I would even go onboard. Is there a "gas sniffer" onboard, what does it indicate. I`ve heard it said the best sniffer is your own nose, but don`t forget olfactory/smell detection turns off with exposure, so you may smell gas, and later not smell it, although still present.
