Need a new fuel tank

I pulled the fuel tank on my 1990 PSC 31 yesterday and found the source of the fuel that has been filling my bilge: a 3/4" diameter hole at the aft end. Aside from some corrosion in that area, the rest of the tank looks to be in good shape. I've had conflicting advice on whether something like this can be repaired. Can anyone recommend a source for a new aluminum tank? Given everything else I've done and plan to do, a new fiberglass tank from the factory is not in the cards. My boat is in Annapolis.

Many thanks.
