Question Endeavour 40 Fuel Tank Size

I'll be posting this to the Endeavour Owners forum but it's not too active so I'm covering all bets.

I am replacing the bladder tank currently installed by the PO in my 1981 40' Endeavour. The original tank was destroyed to get it out so I don't have dimensions for the tank. I have approximate dimensions of the original but would like to get a more accurate set of dimensions. To get to the area where the tank will go requires some major surgery to the sole, engine compartment and removal of the battery box and A/C.

Does anyone have a source for the tank dimensions. I have a quote from Florida Marine Tank (the original builder of the tank for the Endeavour) for an aluminum tank and it is a reasonable $ figure. Before I commit to the quote I would like to fell better about the dimensions. I am calling FMT tomorrow and try to find someone there that can assure me that the tank they quoted is the correct size.

Thanks and sorry for the long post.
