Warrior 175 Fuel Tank Problems

Postby Paul » 04 Jan 2015, 13:09

Taken from Facebook

Please see below a statement from Phil Byrom, director of Warrior Boats Ltd.
Dear 175 customers.
Warrior are aware of the problems people are having with the internal fuel tanks and over the last few months we have been working on a solution to prevent this happening in the future.This has taken longer than we thought as we are working with a navel architect and have to source and test different components and materials.
We would recommend that you contact myself or Paul before doing any remedial work and we will discuss the situation with you.
We are only a couple of weeks off reaching a satisfactory solution and getting this passed by the Naval Architect .We will then be in a position to offer this upgrade free of charge. Should the boat be returned to our workshop we will do the upgrade ourself at no cost.
Best regards
Phil Byrom
PS Happy New Year

Some of the older ones have started to leak under the floor. They are big alloy fuel tanks, after a while with water in the bilges they reckon electrolysis starts to weaken them and eat into the metal eventually ending up with pin holes in the floor of the tank, and very poor fuel consuption ;) The ones I've heard of tend to be fairly old, around 8-10 years old, but by the sounds of it they will all eventually fail....

Doesnt effect me as its separate tanks on the 165, but good to know they are willing to put it right even years down the road....

I am like Padsta Tel in that I had a warrior once and really regret selling it. I now own a alaska 500, grand boat but truthfully not a patch on warriors just cheaper !
