89' Kelly Custom Steel Hull

Winter/Spring 2020 Project List

  • Repair fuel tank

  • Sandblast bottom and repaint

Fuel Tank Repair

We had to cut a hole into the side of the hull in order to remove the fuel tank.

The bottom of the fuel tank had corroded, so we cut the bottom of the tank off and replaced it. Then, we painted the tank. (Here the tank had been painted once; see below for a video of removing the bottom of the tank).

The new tank was installed, and the hull was repaired.
