Fuel Tank in the Bilge

SapperWhite:

I now have access to your tank replacement pictures on the Orion Group site. Very interesting photos of the internal part of the tank. Was the tank just sitting on those PVC pipes? Were the pipes secured to the bottom of the bilge in any permanent manner? Not sure if that was the original mounting method or not. From the texts and the pictures, I guess this was the second fuel tank, so maybe the previous owner added those. Do you have pictures of the new tank you added? How did you run the new fuel lines? Did you get the replacement tank custom made as suggested in the text, or did you end up buying one already prefabricated? Did you ever have a fuel odor smell with the tank in the bilge?
