But it was cheap!

Did you consider coating the whole insides with epoxy or barrier coat? At least that would have eliminated the porosity and prevented rotting from inside out.

Care to enlighten me on what is funny about trying to complete a DIY project?
I wouldn't call it cheap either, I used good products. I chose this route because I was reading on this board actually about a newer boat with a stainless holding tanks that had corroded. so I figured I'd give it a shot.
