    Gibson freshwater tank leaks

    Tank is under the floor in the aft cabin and no way to get at it that I can see. Any way to service it? Water runs out of it somewhere into the bilge.

    if its like the one I did I had to remove the laminate covering the floor first. then you will see the cut out covering the tank,there is a ton of dry wall screws holding it down, take them all out and get a pry bar and pry the flooring cover off the floor.the tank is underneath it, most likely it will be like mine was and rotted out on the bottom. I just went to a metal fabricator and had them build a bigger one that would fit between the stringers for the extra water (120 gal.) the cost was 600$. it sounds hard but I did all the removal in an hour.its more agrivation than hard.
