    A recent discussion has sparked and thought I would bring it up here. There is a boat manufacturer that is having aluminum fuel tanks rotting allowing fuel to drain out into the bilge. It seems this is limited to two of there production models, the 250 and 270 and years 2002 and 2003. The boat owners that have had their tanks repaired are claiming the issue is because the manufacturer installed the fuel tanks in the mold of the hull so any water that enters is getting trapped between the hull and tank rotting the aluminum over time. Apparently the boat manufacturer is claiming that these boats are out of warranty so they are offering no help or compensation. From the research known, this is a huge job costing boat owners $4000-$6000. The major concern is the hazard of these boats launching this Spring with unknown weak degrading fuel tanks, and well, I don't want to go on about what serious consequences may occur. 

    Any thoughts as to remedies or warnings that can be issued to inform the general public, particularly boat owners of this particular make/model?

    Subpoena the vessel manufacturer and require them to notify all owners.

    That sounds pretty harsh. Having a possibility leaking fuel and fire on board is no laughing matter. On top of that manufacturer ignoring the issue because it will show up later after the warranty expires is also a douche move. Sadly more and more manufacturers are lately having problems because they are only seeing money and not the trouble they can cause with lazy craftsmanship. With sites like this it quickly goes from funny to scary...

    Contact CG-BSX at HQ. They can look into the issues and can take action against the manufacturer if it is deemed necessary.

    Please keep in mind this post is over 3 years old, approaching 4 quickly. I surely hope the issue was resolved and someone is not still waiting for an answer.
