    Looks like I'm headed that way. Thank you for responding.
  3. Replacing a holding tank 1993 44 ft Gibson Standard

    I have the original aluminum holding tank and it needs to be replaced. About 1/4th of the width is located under the galley floor; the remainder is under the pantry walls and bathroom wall framing....

    Both engines shut down within seconds of each other while cruising at 3200 rpm. Did not hear any alarms when this was occurring. No fuel is getting to either engine. Both will crank momentarily...
