Question Fuel Tank Vent and Overfill

I have a 1998 LY31 ft. When I filled it with fuel, it leaks out the top of the fuel tank and then stopped after a day. I looked underneath and there appears to be a port at the top drivers side of the tank with a piece of rubber cover the port and held on by aq hose clamp. Is this proper or is something missing? I just purchased this unit this week.

My 280 has several unused ports on the top of the tank, I suppose for different applications. I found one was open and leaking with a full tank so I installed a pipe plug. All the ports are threaded on my tank.

Cheers, Dan
