I have decided to install a Pate 27 gallon fiberglass gas tank in my 87 Montauk!
My local dealer quoted $381.00 for the tank, plus $15.00 freight. The Teak Hold down is $45.00.
This seems VERY high after reading the old threads regarding gas tanks. Does anyone know a cheaper distributor who ships?

Will do...the order will be processed next week, and I'll have all the info (inc. shipping) then. Includes teak brackets too.

I saw one of these tanks in the Cetecea picture 41 and liked it.

Other than looks, what are the advantages of this tank over the 28 gallon Tempo that I have?

Jay.... Other than looks, no real advantages over your Tempo in my opinion.
It happens to be the fuel tank OEM for my year Montauk (1989).
I think I remember some problems with the height of some Tempo tanks and clearance for accessing the opening when fueling. Help me out guys........

I love my Pate 27. More expensive but mine is 13 years old and is tip-top. Not gonna get that from a plastic tank(at least not any ones I have owned).

What really sold me is the clear plastic sight tube. As you look at the tank from the stern, there is a clear, verticle strip (with corresponding gallon marks I believe) No guess work there. BTW I will soon have two 12 gallon aluminum (repainted) red tanks, with nice red mats available, if anyone is interested.
