    Hello and welcome to BOC .

    There is really no such thing as a small gas leak.

    If your Contessa is the Sunbridge model (not flying bridge) the tank is under the bed in the master stateroom.

    If it isn't the hose in or out or the vent hose your only solution is replace the tank.

    You may be able to remove the tank through the cabin. On mine it had a 90 gallon tank because I had twins. If yours is a single engine, it will be 120 gallons. Not sure if you can remove that without taking it out the engine bay. Bigger job.

    You also can cut the tank and get it out in pieces and replace it with a smaller tank.

    Use caution of course if you are cutting it.

    It is an issue with all boats, not just yours.

    First find out where its leaking. The floor under the bed should come up and you can see it. Again if it is the model I mentioned. I don't know on the twin helm model.
