I'm looking to purchase a 34'.* Can the fuel in the tanks be measured by using a dip stick through the fuel fills or do I need to rely on the fuel gauge?
*Yes you can use a stick, however the gages on the 78 Mainship I had were
extremely accurate. I could predict within 10 gallons how much fuel I could take
on. I thought that was excellent on a 110 gallon tank. I also tried using a
stick when I first bought the boat but gave it up as the gages proved out to be
as or more accurate.*
It became somewhat of a game after a while but with the boat level and with careful reading of the gage it was pretty easy.
