UNDER CERTAIN CONDITONS BILGE WATER COULD ENTER THE FUEL TANK COMPARTMENT LEADING TO CORROSION AND FAILURE OF THE FUEL TANK. S2 NOTIFIED OVER 700 OWNERS NOT TO USE THEIR BOATS UNTIL THE FUEL TANKS COULD BE INSPECTED. NOT ALL OF THE BOATS HAVE THIS PROBLEM. EACH NEEDS TO BE INDIVIDUALLY INSPECTED AND AN ASSEMENT MADE BY A QUALIFIED DEALER. S2 HAS DEVELOPED A PROCESS TO INSPECT THESE VESSELS AND REPAIR OR REPLACE TANKS AS NEEDED. 08/03/2000 CAMPAIGN UPDATE REPORT (CUR)#1. 815 UNITS: 629 OWNERS NOTIFIED: 145 DEALERS NOTIFIED: 26 UNITS REPAIRED: 91 UNITS NO PROBLEM. 09/29/04.
