Re: Fuel tank dipstick
Use a sight tube. simple brass compression 90 degree fittings threaded into the tank, the run clear fuel line between them. we do this on all of our Raspberry harvesters. when you clean out the tank every few years, simply replace the the cheap tube to ensure reliability. if your handy, which as a wooden boat owner you should be, you can pipe it to a location where it is easily visible. that is, given your tank is in a good location.
