Terry, My poly tank maker will not say his poly tanks can be used for fuel because of the liability problem. If there is a fire in the engine compartment, and the tank melts, it will spill more fuel onto the fire.

An aluminum tank cannot sit in a puddle of salt water without getting eaten up by electrolysis. You need to set some strips of teak or plastic under the tank so that air can get under the tank to keep it dry. Coating the bottom of the tank with epoxy or automobile undercoating also helps.

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!

See the full list here!
