New diesel tank for the heater

All of a sudden there was a lot of diesel in the bilge of the boat (not good)! It turned out that the original diesel tank for the diesel heater was so badly corroded that it the bottom started to leak. I already planned to replace that diesel tank for a bigger one. There are two wasted spaces at the far left and far right at the back of the boat where I planned to place the new diesel tank. This turned out to be a lot more work then I hoped, but it does free up a lot of space, plus now the tank for the heater is big enough for almost two weeks off heating the boat without the need to refill the tank. Also I made the refill cap for this tank much easer to access and I will now be able to install a diesel level sensor with a gauge indicator, so I can always see the diesel level in this new diesel tank. Photo’s will be added later on.
