First time on this thread. I just bought a 1977 230 Robalo center console. I got a great deal on the boat, trailer and motor. The fiberglass all around looks awesome and the transom and floor seem solid. I had about 8 gallons of water I siphoned out of the fuel tank which I think originated from the sending unit which had to screws stripped with standing water over the top of it and water still coming from the foam. After I replace the sending unit I plan on doing a pressure test as I've read on here, but I'm not really sure how that's done? It looks as if the tank was replaced before, since it has a metal plate over the area where the chairs were with a new bench? I've done alot of looking on this site and have yet to find any pictures of any boats my size and period with the tanks and coffins open? Is this boat self bailing? Is there a drainage system below the deck? Thanks in advance for any advice you may have for me. Cheers, Eric
