I will check again for an access hatch in there.
If the box in the picture is marking the top of the tank, it would seem much smaller than 100+ gallon capacity, but sometimes that is hard to judge.
Thanks to all. I'm a newbie here and am very impressed with timing of all your replies. This is one very active forum. I owe somebody a reply to something when its my turn.
Are you SURE you are talking about the same boat here?????? The 35' Cabo had 1- 400 gallon fuel tank underneath the cockpit sole just foward of the lazzarette deck hatch but in the cockpit. I've run about 30 of them over the years this I am positive of.......Cabo didn't get into 2 fuel tanks until the 43' and larger.
The fuel tank you are referring to as the foward fuel tank should be your water tank. If you do not have a fuel transfer pump, which you shouldn't, then you don't have a foward fuel tank. The watertanks on the Cabo are fiberglass, glassed in with the rest of the boat. The waste tank should be a plastic tank. Follow the water fill inside the boat, the tank should be midship, parallel to the water fill.
The box shown in the picture is what the batteries are mounted underneath of, or inside of rather.
