Use a lighter and....


"there was fuel in the bilge" and "Noticed fuel through the front hatch drain hole and the anchor chain was soaked in fuel. Took the port side speaker out and saw fuel puddled by the fuel cell. Same side as the vent. No idea how that got there."

I would start your search at the tank. Try to do a full visual inspection. If it's pooling then good chances you should be able to find the leak upstream. However if the bottom of the tank has a crack or pin hole leak then it may be harder to find. They make a florescent dye you can put in your fuel tank to help pinpoint the leak.

Get a UV light if you don't already have one.

Good luck!
We had some guys in Tampa area look for a fuel leak with a lighter....boom! lol
