Gas tank Locker for cockpit

I have been contact with a guy who can make a fiberglass gas tank locker that will fit into the cockpit of my J 29. It get the gas tank off the cockpit floor. The mold is going to cost about $500.00 to make and then each locker will cost about $100.00. If I could get more interested then the price of the mold could get divided and the cost would come down. PM me with your email and I can send a picture.

CaptainForce will become famous soon enough
You might mention how the locker is vented and drained. People get real concerned about gas storage.

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.

Tank locker is pretty much a 3 sided box that the tank slides into so no need for a vent or a drain. I have tried loading a picture of it but have not been successful. I am thinking about a 6 gal gas tank bought at all West Marine stores. I can email the picture to someone if they are able to post it for me. The picture will make it all clear.
