Thanks. I've seen several broker write ups where they mention tanks being replaced. This boat definitely has fiberglass tanks ( looking at it again today), just makes one wonder why and how?

Btw, your overall opinion of your 42'? Anything that surprised you after buying it?

I really like the boat. Great use of space, headroom, lots of storage especially the inside closets in the aft stateroom. Handles well, great visibility from the pilothouse for docking etc. No negative surprises. Not everyone seems to be a fan of the 8.2 Detroit diesels, but they have given me no problem.

I was looking at an old ad for another RW 42 and it had Fiberglass tanks listed. The name of the boat was "Plan Sea"

Hope my rambling helps

My Roughwater is a 29 foot, and it has fiberglass fuel tanks but I have never seen another Roughwater. As near as I know I have the only one of any size in eastern Canada. The 29 was built in Korea and only 12 were built. We have owned Waymaker for 12 years and have done many upgrades. We have always been happy with her , usually getting questions and comments wherever we go. Gary.
