5th December 2016

Category: Fuel, Hull

Maintenance/Repair Details:
Finally installed the port side new fuel tank after having it manufactured at Adweld of Rainham, Kent. They produced a complete copy of the old tank with regards to fittings location and size. Tank is slightly heavier being made of 3mm mild steel rather than the original 2mm steel.

Fitted straight in and coupled up.

11th December 2016 - Starboard fuel tank contents transferred via electrical diesel pump to new port side tank. Starboard tank then uncoupled and removed, taken to Adweld as pattern for new tank.

22nd December 2016 - Finally installed new starboard tank and returned the aft cabin to it's former glory. It was a long road having to have two new fuel tanks made and installing them but well worth it as Kevayling remains 'as built'.
