I have dealt with Choates before and they are great. He made all new hatches for the bow area of my Outrage 25. His work is very high quality. No website.

Re: Classic 25-foot Hull; Tank Dimensions; 140-gallon

When I replaced the boat's fuel tank last winter, I first pulled the old tank from my Outrage 25 and gave it to a local fabricator to copy. Why not do the same in your case?
