If you have strong diesel smells in your cabin, especially when you open up the
boat after a few days and go below, you probably have a leak(s) somewhere in
your fuel system. Check everything from the fill hose, around the engine to
the return hose. When I first bought my boat there was a strong diesel smell
and I discovered the bottom of the fuel tank had some severe corrosion with
tiny pin holes and the wood nearby was saturated. Also found a very rusty
steel putty knife / blade wedged under the tank that seemed to set up the
corrosion – dissimilar metals and all…
While good ventilation is key to resolving a host of issues as others have
mentioned, in this case you may be treating a symptom and not the cause. Same
can be said for strong head smells: find the source [usually old hoses] and
resolve that; the air will be much clearer.
