water tanks for a 42

For those of you still sailing your First 42s
My tanks went bad a couple years ago and I replaced them with those offered by Plastimo.. The length is fine at 67 inches but the diameter is 27 inches with the fill tube on the top of the tank.. Poses a problem when filling as the fill tube bindes when the tank is two inches from from the top. because of the odd angles where the sole meets the hull. it creates a problem in having a solid tank made....
Has anyone found a replacement for the tanks?????????????????
