    Fresh WaterTank Leak?-gctid387523

    Hello All, thanks for the previous help. Today I noticed a little standing water next to my fresh water tank, on my 1985 2850 Contessa CB. My son had filled the tank a few days eariler, and there seemed to e a little water on the deck next to the tank. The tank is plastic, by the way. The trickle ( it is a little bit ) seems to be coming from under the port side of the tank, draining from under the 2"x 2" boards screwed in to help hold the tank. I drained about four inches down on the tank, hoping it was over filled. Just a sligt bit getting the deck wet when I left the boat at the dock. I can see most of the front and port side of the tank, but I think pulling same, might be an issue. If anyone has any ideas and or solutions, I would greatly appreciate it. Additionally, while taking up this space, the slider windows ( the bottem liners, for lack of a better term) seem to be worn out and causing the windows to leak. Anyone know where I can get replacements or another solution. Thanks again. Everyone is great and this is a great place.

    Interesting question. My '85 2850 Contessa Sunbridge has an aluminum water tank under the cabin floor that is no longer used. All the lines have been removed, and a new plastic tank was added (by PO) behind the holding tank on the port side in the stern.

    I am assuming it leaked or it would not have been disconnected, right? I wish it were still in use as I could use the weight there rather than on the port side stern.

      Did this to Midnight Sum several years back and tried every magical epoxy/glue on the market designed especially for polyethylene but none worked so don't bother trying. Believe, me if there was a way I would have glued/patched it as I needed to cut out the floor to change it if glue did not work. Ended up bringing it to a local shop who specialized in welding plastics and they did a beautiful solid job for $30. I suggest you do the same.
      Cheers, Hans
