clean the tank using a bleach mixture. If you want to coat the tank, I would recommend using CeRAMKote 54 Epoxy.
This epoxy-based coating was specifically designed for use on fiberglass and other substrates for use in potable water systems.
BTW, most of the contaminants that would have leached from the fiberglass, have probably done so in the past 30 years.
West Systems epoxies aren't really designed for use in potable water systems.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
