I am a sailing novice and I plan to purchase a cruising sailboat within the next 6 months. I plan to cruise the Bahamas, Caribbean, and possibly farther. The boat that I''ve found that I like most is a Stamas 44. The good news: It can carry 173 gallons of diesel and 325 gallons of freshwater in aluminum tanks. The bad news: Both the fuel and water are in single (large) tanks. This really concerns me. Has anyone had any experience replacing/dividing tanks to create 2 smaller tanks rather than a single large tank? The other good news is that the Stamas is very well designed otherwise, and both tanks are easily accessed for removal/replacement without a major hassle.
Any opinions on easy/inexpensive methods to subdivide large aluminum tanks?
