fiberglass water tank

I am repairing a fiberglass water tank. The tank is non-integral to the hull, but can''t be removed without removing the interior. I don''t want to put a bladder inside due to shape. I have ground,sanded and dried the interior, and now need to recoat. Amercoat 233ER looks suitable, but I must buy a 5 gal pail! Are there any other suitable materials for painting the fresh water tank?

Consider using Epoxy.
Is this tank used for potable water? Epoxy may or may not be suitable.

After you clean off the amine blush (soap and water) most epoxies are FDA approved for potable water. Ask the manufacturer.
