I took my new skiff out this past weekend for a trial run and two hours into the drive he quit in middle River come to find out the pick up tube in the gas tank had broken into three pieces and was laying in the bottom of the tank. Naturally I started at the back of the boat at the motor and replaced all hoses clamps and fuel water separator before getting to the tank to find out that was the issue. Needless to say I have a new fuel system and I know it's up to par. I suggest anyone an above the deck console mounted 18 gallon fuel tank to take care of it because I could not find one anywhere to match the one that I was going to replace but fortunately only Needed to replace the pick up tube and not redo the whole fuel tank Gonna have to name it Ford if it keeps this up
