What type of boat do you have?
Could just be the anti-syphon fitting that broke, they can get heavily corroded and under the right circumstances break off.
Does anyone have a recommendation for gas tank repair or replacement in the Clearwater/ St. Pete area? While I was out of town my boat developed a steady fuel leak and covered my buddies driveway in gas. I pulled out the fuel line and it looked good so I'm pretty sure its the tank. Its pretty sad because the boat is only 6 years old. I am going to attempt to take the tank out myself and have it repaired or if I have to, replace it. If you have done this before, any tips or recommendations would be appreciated.
Its a 2005 Angler 204 Center Console. Where is the anti-syphon usually located?
On top of the tank, it's the fitting your fuel line(hose) going out to the motor attaches to.
On that boat I believe you just unscrew the many screws and bring up the deck to access the tank. You will have to cut the sealer with a razor knife also.
The sealer forms a bead around the deck piece.

It seems pretty easy to get to the tank, I may have to move the T-top though. I'm not sure if the anti-syphon is the problem with it being on the top of the tank, as the fuel was leaking while it sat in the driveway. It was less than 3/4 full. There are access ports to the tank fuel lines and I could see no issues there. It looks like it will likely have to come out. Thanks for the replies Kaotic, I noticed you do boat repairs. Do you have a recommendation for a new tank? I would love to be back on the water before I deploy in August.
