Re: Brown pt plywood

Technically you can use the green BUT it CAN NOT touch aluminum anodized or not, (it will corrode it) so if you used rubber or something strips it would work. But for the trouble AND glue adhesion issues, I wouldn't use it. The marine plywood is about $85 a Sheet, has no voids and uses waterproof gl...

Re: Fuel tank venting question.

I wouldn't call it redneck, they actually drilled and tapped the aluminum sending unit instead of trying same on the thin plastic tank. A lot of boats with small/portable size tanks do not have enough venting when filling tank OR they use the filler neck as a vent. You get a lot of burping while fil...
