Leaking fuel tank

I have a leaking 100 gal fuel tank on my 37 Irwin. I am trying to figure out if I should remove the tank and replace with plastic, or use a flexible bladder type as a permanent instillation. Anyone have any suggestions?

How about cutting it apart (flooded with water) and then installing an epoxy - fiberglass internal liner. If you can do such work yourself, the cost is minimal and the ''fit'' will be perfect.
Go to the WEST System website for project hints, etc.
