Was detailing the inside of the boat today. When I opened the center locker, there was a slight smell of gasoline. Is this normal? Just wondering if I need to remove the 4 screws and check all the gas lines etc? Read a few post about fuel line rubs and Broken T fittings. Thanks

gasoline is the 1st thing I smell when I pull the cover off the boat (after being on for six days).

I think a bit of a smell is normal when it's all covered. Mine is better but not gone after I fixed that fuel line that had the pin-hole leak in it from being rubbed against the floor panel.

My Cooler Mid floor always smelled heavy of Gasoline. I plugged it so the air from the engine/bilge couldnt get to it an it no longer smells like that. Does the Locker have a drain? If so put a cork in it and it will seal it off from the bilge.
