One important advice is to spend time in Greifswald and make sure you have sailed the boat and run the motor for some hours. Get to know the systems in the boat and make sure they work at sea not only at the dock; do test and retest them. Run checklist and be diligent in this and have Hanse fix problems on site do not postpone it.

 

It is easy to be overwhelmed by joy so keep a leveled head in this.

 

We could have saved us time and a few issues with the dealer if we had spent a few more days there.

 

Cheers

Last weekend we picked up our boat from the dealer, where now finally, after one year, the diesel tank has been fully replaced by the factory.
We have a 2-cabin version, and they were able to remove and replace the tank without removing or modifying any interior parts.
It now looks like this, it is clear that the manhole is fastened in a different way:

Which port leaked? The sender opening or the larger shutoff?

Jon- my new email is mcpsr51@gmail.com. Could you send me yours off forum? BTW trying Intellicast wx for boaters app- so far looks really good. Also if you didn't install AIS- used Boat Beacon App yesterday in dense fog- was huge help in ID for radar targets!, all you need is good cell signal.

In the 2 cabin version THE TANK DOES NOT FIT THRU THE OPENINGS!!! Broker brought new tank, don't know Hanse's reasoning on replacement versus repair. Our leak was partially caused by crack on top of sender,also had slight deformity at hole for sender. Replaced sender, of course sender for new tank does not fit old tank. Purchased generic sender at W Marine, installed with different gasket- hoping for no leak when topping off. Long term we hope to install new tank- probably have to modify cabin door! On 2 week cruise- the story continues.

Hi Mike,

Thanks for the update; how did everything go? Does the tank fit through the existing openings? Many work involved, or piece of cake? Hope all is solved now!

My dealer is not offering to replace the tank; can you inform me why your dealer decided to do so? This might help me in persuading mine.

Thanks!

Machiel.
