Fuel tank replacement

Has anyone changed out the fuel tank in their P30? The cylindrical metal tank in my P30 is badly corroded and needs replacement. Where did you find a replacement? Round or rectangular? Plastic or metal?

My boat came with an uninstalled plastic rectangular tank. It fits between the two vertical pieces of ply that supported the round one, and is contained & supported by additional plywood, as well as, metal strapping. It *may* be a Tempoproducts under-deck / Tempo TP18T, I cannot recall the model # or dimensions. Havent used it yet, as I still have to get the engine aligned, and test run.

Also, while you are messing with fuel lines, and such, check the bowl of the fuel filter, I attempted to scrape out the rust, and went all the way thru it!!

best of luck,
