Thanks. I looked today , but didn't have a chance to check in detail . Looks like 11 inches clearance...
Now, the question is - if the old one can come out that way, will the new one to in that way ....

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off your bowlines. Sail away from safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover.

Diesel Fuel Tank Replacement Cal 2-29

Anyone have info on availability of replacement tanks for this boat? I'm planing to buy this boat and anticipating replacement of a tank with much surface rust.

The one I have was bought second hand, but for a motorboat. I would shop around and look for a good deal, paying to have one fabricated will be pricey.

Good luck with your boat!!! I am waiting till spring to install my tank, still haven't decided exactly how to go about putting it in.

Re: installing a new gas tank for my 28' boat

My boat had an aluminum tank. It corroded and burst. I replaced it with a 'box-shaped' tank mounted under a starboard cockpit seat. The tank came from Moeller.

Moeller Marine Online - Permanent Tanks

The cross-linked polyethylene can never corrode, but I did have to fabricate a shelf for the new tank. I've used this style tank for several other projects and I'm happy with the results.
