Get off my lawn.
I wonder why they didn't put em in like that to begin with. guess it was to keep the fuel line away from the settee? and maybe protected behind that bulkhead. at least it isn't as bed as the routing on the hose for the bilge pump in the J30After discussions with the yard... we're going to move the fuel fill hole forward about a foot, run the line down adjacent and connected to the forward side of the icebox cabinet, following the interior of the hull down into the setee to the tank. That cabinet is glassed in and solid like a rock... they thought it would be expensive to basically disassemble and re-assemble the cabinet, cut out parts then re-glass them back in, and it likely wouldn't go back together as tight as it is now. The new position will be out of the way but will be more easily replaced if need be and save quite a bit of money. I'd have reservations if this were a gas fill line but since it is diesel - and having seen how hard it is to cut or puncture one of these lines - I think this approach will work fine. Will post up pics once it's done.
