NEED A RELEASE: My boat sank in its slip up to the gunwales. I hauled it and everything seemed to be okay. But when I fill the tank, I don’t hear any air coming out of the vent, and when the tank is full, the gas burps out of the fill hole instead of out the breather vent. What should I do? Mark Stuart West Hartford,

CT: It sounds as if water seeped into your vent line and stayed there when the boat sank. Disconnect the line at the tank and drain the water into a coffee can or small container to ensure that it doesn’t get into your fuel.
