    Hi folks,
    I've just dug out my 30 gal fuel tank from my 1965 Bertram Moppie. The tank came out fairly easy, now I need to replace it (it's an Ethanol thing). I'd like to go with a Poly tank, I'm salt water all the time, so I'd rather not go with aluminum. Any suggestions? Has anyone done this before?

    Try Perko, Tempo or Taylor-Made as starting point; measure the exisiting tank size dimensions and geometry and see what will work.
