First of all I want to let everyone know how much I like my 2825 Kingfisher and this post is not intended to bash the manufacture or anyone associated with the production or sale of the brand. Also understand all boats have issues and are not flawless in their design or build and there is no such thing as the perfect boat. That being said I have discovered an issue with my fuel tank rear mounts that I consider serious and everyone who owns a similar kingfisher boat should investigate this to be sure you don't have the same problem.
In removing the rear deck floor I found my left rear fuel tank mount completely broke and the right side broke half way across. These brackets keep the 160 gallon tank from moving back or side to side and in my opinion this mount could very easily puncture the tank. I feel compelled to make other Kingfisher boat owners aware of this issue because I canít imagine, for obvious reasons, the ramifications of many gallons of fuel in your hull. So if youíre interested I will send you my pictures of the broken brackets and what I did to fix the problem. I did not ask the manufacture or dealer to repair this, I just took care of it myself. The manufacture is aware of my dilemma and this issue may be isolated to my boat however I felt obligated to post this to make other owners aware. So there ya go, I've done my part and it's up to you to check it out.
