"dug out" last year.
|Tensie Mae's fuel tank|
almost ready for jacking out
This shows the fiberglass bulkhead forward of Tensie Mae's tank almost completely removed. Removing the bulkhead is the hardest part of the removal. It is tough and the work area is small. I had to break it out one small piece at a time using small saws, pry bars and hammers.

This is the new tank prior to installation. It is encased in epoxied fiberglass cloth to prevent any moisture from reaching the aluminum tank sides and causing corrosion.
