    thanks Dat , might be on to something the seller who provided the tank did say it had diesel in it so its looking like that it was the purpose as a long range tank perhaps. i might flog it off if a cant make it fit or make a vent , cheers

    The bowl just doesnt make sense that type of bowl on a fuel tank are found in older style cars but yours looks to be designed around it being accessable from the bottom possibly to drain fuel its a weird one its also a very slim looking and tall tank unless that tank holds 700 litres andits an illusion

    Fuel tanks second hand are pretty cheap Cat i picked up mine from memory $120, i just seen a decent cruisetank going for $150 on facebook you could sort of molest your hull to accept that fuel tank but geez shes an unique looking tank
    its looking like its not even a marine tank now , though it appears well made and has baffles .holds about 120litres if my math is correct , if i cant make it work then will look at those saint marine tanks , that little bowl thing puzzled me .

    Hey Cat the idea behind the bowl on a automotive fuel tank is so the fuel pump sits in the bowl permantly so when your low on fuel and u go up or down a steep hill and what fuel u have left in the tank sloshes to the other end the bowl remains full untill u correct and level the car again its so the fuel pump always has fuel

    Its like a fuel management system on a efi outboard on my merc it has a little container bolted on to the block which houses the fuel pumps and submerges them both in fuel my FMS is just like the bowl on your tank

    im just going to cut this stinger casing halfway down , hog out the pulp , insert fresh material and recap off . i think the glass tabbing on the bottom should still be sound enough

    Looking really good Cat, that is quiet a nice boat i like it it has that very heavy duty offshore look to it, cloth is wetting out really nice where'd u get the 1708 from?

    Haha that trailer can hold a army tank

    See the transom Cat its starting to get mould u might wanna get crackin on it or give it a sand than just a coat of resin to seal it so it cant go mouldy

    That stringer u may find it will ve easier to just knock the whole stringer out and glass a fresh one in, a few of the guys on a fb group just hold the new stringer in position and fillet both sides than glass over
