Default Will nitro fuel eat through?

Hi, I recently sold a ProBoat 36" nitro Shockwave that I never used, the buyer tells me that the gas tank leaked nitro
and ate a hole in the hull. The hull is made of fiberglass, is this possible that nitro will eat a hole through it? The boat was sold to him a week ago.........
thanks

Yeah, I saw that he was complaining about it over on RCG.
For some reason, ProBoat's hulls don't like standing fuel on the fiberglass and it's not the first one that I've heard about having this problem. Why, I don't know as most fiberglass hulls don't have this issue. A lot of owners have had to seal theirs with epoxy.
