Fuel Tank Baffles
I have building a 48 cubic foot aluminum diesel fuel tank approx 5ft x 5ft top 2ft deep at center and follows the bottom V shape. (360gallons)
What is the requirement for baffles. I heard something about 3 cubic, but that sounds like a lot of baffles.
This is from Title 46 Code of Federal Regulations Part 119 and applies to Commercial Passenger Carrying vessels under 100 gross tons, not recreational boats. This link is to a pdf file so you'll need Adobe Reader to display it.
