Fuel Tanks-1990 GB 36

We have steel fuel tanks. I am being advised I may have a small leak in the starboard tank and may be looking at a huge expense replacing due to the fact that it will have to be cut up.

Do these tanks really develop leaks?

Has anyone had this experience, cost, replacement tank material?

Thanks for the input. I have been trying to avoid enlarging the mortises but may have no choice.

Stern Locker Hinge-Updated

Looking for a source for a stern locker hinge. Polished brass hinge must be 1 1/8 at the swivel (mid-section). Newer hinges are 1 1/4. GB advises they stopped using this size 10+ years ago.

Does anyone know of a source?

Thanks,Rich

Thanks Bob,

I tried ice and tapping with rubber mallet but to no avail. It appears I will have to drill it out. Any thoughts where to get a brass holding tank deck cap?
