Has anyone got experience with fuel bladders. I want to put a tank in the keel area of my 35' sailboat, where the original tank came out of.
If a fuel tank in the bilge is really what you want, why don't you build one? It isn't too difficult to lay up fibreglass on plywood forms and either build it in situ, or make a plwood mold an do it on-shore - just make sure you use at least 2 layers of mat (preferably 3 or 4) and build in the fittings you need.
You'll find a solid tank much less hassle in service than a flexible one.
