I would point you to the race records of these boats. Olson 25s and Express 27s have successfully raced to Hawaii from the west coast--don't think any Merits have.

There are two Olson 25s in our...

I'm not sure where you're located but most good diesel repair shops and yards can fabricate a tank. I had a new tank made by List Marine in Sausalitio—they did a great job. Good luck.
