I'm thinking 1 of 3 reasons.

1. The new weld didn't hold

2. We didn't get enough support from the foam when it was reinstalled and there is too much force from the fuel sloshing around. There are no baffles in the tanks.

3. A structural problem causing too much flex in the hull. God I hope not!!

Man Ken, you just can't get a break with that boat! When are you coming out to Greenport? You can hang out with us, if you have no boat Good luck with the fix, maybe you should just get a new tank with baffels.
