Hi all,

Long-time rebuild on 30' 1993 Party Hut.

Issue:  everything runs great on this boat, but at higher speeds, engine starves of fuel unless primer bulb is pumped, then it's fine.  My belief is that the previous owner used only ethanol gas in the boat, and that there is gunk/junk that's getting sucked up against the fuel hose filter inside the tank.

HOW in the world do I clean this thing out?  It's built into the boat, and I can't get the nozzle that the fuel line is attached to off of the tank because it's apparently connected inside the tank somehow.

Thanks for any advice!
