Yes, I used the Flamemaster CS 3204 tank sealant. It's nearly identical to a product called ProSeal which has been used in aviation fuel tanks for decades.

I'll start a dedicated thread for the fuel tank repair.

"9. Stbd shift cable broken-came home with stbd engine fwd only -replacement cable on order"

In a huge plug for twin engines, my shift cable broke at the first overnight anchorage on a solo 4 day fishing trip. I left the stbd engine in fwd and continued fishing, including changing locations and re-anchoring throughout the next 3 days. Then I came home on both engines and docked on the port engine only. If I needed stbd fwd, I could start the stbd engine in short bursts. As it turned out, it wasn't needed.

Back into the slip with a swish! Nothing but net.

Got my new 16 ft cable from Amazon yesterday for less than $50 and my 300A fuse arrives tomorrow, so I'll be heading back for repairs as ASAP. With any luck, we'll be fishing again in a week.

Oh, to be sooo good. re your port engine issue; had the same thing on Scooter. Turned out to be feedback thru the alternator keeping the solenoid circuit alive; bad diode. Have lots of fixing to do as well; won't be missing any boating for the next few months; guess that could be denial, or a positive spin on winter. Happy Holidays

Yes please post. I too have been plagued by a leaky tank recently. Would the sealant work on a old steel tank ?
Thanks

Here's a link to the fuel tank sealant repair thread.

It's important to mention that this product is for sealing the tank and not for restoring structural integrity to a structurally compromised tank.
