Eastern Seaway 19
Hello,
I bought a new-to-me 2000 19' CC (Eastern/Seaway) and find definite trace gasoline leakage in the bilge. The fuel lines are old, brittle and 'greyed out'.
I am having a repower done with a 90 HP Tohatsu replacing a 90 Honda - all new fuel lines.
The under deck, non-accessible gas tank is polyethelene (per Eastern), (23 Gal per the original owner, though not verified by Eastern), original equipment.
From what I can see of the tank through pry-up ports, it 'looks' okay.
My question is: Should I replace the tank or simply change the lines and see how things go?
I was quoted $600. labor, sans tank and fittings, to rip up and re-seal the deck. I am also searching for the size of the original tank. Skip from Eastern does not know.
Ted Ryan has kindly responded and is checking his notes.
Thanks much for any and all input, I do appreciate it.
Joe Kenney

Yes, you are correct, it's the tank.
I am in your debt, thanks much.
Do you think the tank should be replaced or leave it be?

If it was my boat and the floor was coming up followed by a new repower I'd opt for a complete new fuel system. For the price of that tank and new sender it's kinda hard not to have the piece of mind it's all new.
