Sorry to keep asking questions, but I'm deep into this tank replacement now and find that the original tank is an odd ball size- looks like 102 inches long- that's 8 and 1/2 feet- and only 21" wide at the top- I havn't dug the poured bedding foam out yet, so don't know the depth- am sure it is a belly tank- Now- Please- does anyone know where I should go for this tank??? I had hoped to use a standard Florida Marine Tank 55 gallon belly tank from Outer banks, but it is no way near this size...I have a number for Florida Marine tank- are there any other sources that may be a better price???? incidentially- this tank looks great on the top, but is definitely leaking from corrosion at the left rear side weld...only problem I had getting at it was failure to realize that the console area was screwed down to the inner hull sides- realized it when i couldn't raise liner even after all side screws were out- now I have striped some of the screw holes....any ideas on how to fix- really need some tank sources if you know any....many thanks in advance- this job went easier than I thought it would....Dave Murray

I would take the old tank to a shop that can fabricate a new one the exact same size and put the fittings in. Good Luck

Dave - See page 293 in the current West catalog. They can also get a tank made for you from an outfit called RDS Manufacturing.
They previously used a company called Skyline Industries. I'll bet it's going to cost $400 or so.
