This question should be addressed to the boat builder, not Caterpillar.

Leaking Diesel Fuel Tank

I have a 45' Sundancer with twin 3126 CATS.  The Port fuel tank leaked.  The leak is forward by the aft bulkhead for the galley, lounge area.  Have been told to lift out engine in dry dock, cut the deck and remove the engine, cut a hole in the Port side of the hull and other suggestions.  Have flown turbine aircraft with wet wings, no fuel bladder that leaked.  Maintenance used a compoound that sealed the wing and stopped the leak.  Anyone on this venue had to deal with this mess?  Suggestion!
