Did you find one?
 
Maggie,
Did you fine a fuel tank in Canada? I just learned my tank has a leak and was wondering where you got yours. I live in the US but will get it from Canada if necessary. Actually, Canada is only 45 miles from where I live and sail.

C&C 35-3 fuel tank
 
I just ordered a replacement for my 35-3. The original model tank can still be built. They were made by Mirax (US - Arizona), which is still in business. The original tank was model ah20e and can be built and delivered in about 2 weeks. They have limited website support. Your best bet is to call them at: (928) 680-5670

I also have a MKIII

How did you removed the old tank. Will it fit through the
lazarette. I am thinking of replacing mine because of the age and all the possible crud build up in it. What is the cost of the new tank? Does it have baffles?

Dave,

The tank came out through the lazarette ok. You need to remove the shut-off valve first as it is a pretty tight fit. The new tank cost $300 plus shipping. It is an exact replacement for the original. I am not sure about the baffles. I think that there is one in original. I was was planning on just having the tank cleaned in preparation for an offshore race next year, but when we got it out we found that there were a couple of quarter sized corrosion areas on the bottom that looked likely to fail.
