I just found this.

USCG 183.518 Fuel tank openings.
Each opening into the fuel tank must be at or above the topmost surface of the tank.

I stand corrected. Worked great for my water tanks.

Nice job on the glassing! I'll be referring to this thread when I have to do mine. Special thanks for all the photos.
