I've been doing additional reading on the subject and have seen a post where a 2008 boat, not an x-1 however, had a full tank of fuel vent liquid fuel out a vent line that was on the stern and ruin his decals.. But that boat obviously has a thru-hull fitting on the stern. I'm not near my boat right now, but don't recall a thru-hull fitting for a fuel vent anywhere, and am beginning to believe my boat isn't vented, and that this is how it was designed..
