    Default Repairing deck on fiberglass motorboat.

    Iíd like to replace the deck on my 1985 Bayliner Capri with some exterior plywood and fiberglass mat. There is a metal fuel tank under the deck about two feet in front of the transom. Iíd say itís about a 25 gallon tank. I bought the boat in Phoenix, and it still had some fuel in it. Tank never leaked, it seems, on the four hour trip to northern Arizona. Is it safe to go ahead and reglass the deck over the tank? I really donít want to remove the tank for inspection. Iíd rather add more fuel to the tank and see if it does leak at all. What are the options?
