I have a fuel tank leak spilling into (and filled) the bilge on my '89 Panther. The marina claims they must completely dismantle my helm and cut out under the bench seat to remove and replace the tank. They also claim the 3/4" foam embedding the tank will make their work more difficult. They estimate 50 hours in just the labor cost alone.

I need to explore a less invasive (and hence less costly) repair. So, has anyone got experience with using a baffle for repair? I see ATL advertised on several forums. Also, does anyone having this era Wellcraft know whether the fuel tanks are baffled? This of course tells me if I'll be slicing the top of the tank off to remove them.

Finally, has anyone else suffered a leaking fuel tank and repair to confirm the marina's time estimate?
