i have fuel tank issues on a cheap boat. i figured it would be a whole lot easier just to add an external tank rather than spending more time and money than its really worth. i hopefully plan on upgrading this next year, so this plan will hopefully keep us fishing this season. does anyone know of a local place that can fabricate a custom tank for me? and could it be made of hard plastic or similar material? thanks in advance for any help...

you should remove the old tank, could be dangerous , containing fumes...

I just had IMCO make a custom aluminum tank for my Hobie Skiff and gotta say they did great work. When you're ready to tackle the problem of replacing the in-the-deck tank I'd go with IMCO. For a plastic above deck tank Moeller would be a great option.

thanks for all the feedback guys. i dont think all the work of replacing the tank is worth it. id really like to be in a newer model center console by next year, and all that money and time could be put towards that

A custom plastic tank is un-realistic. Cost of a custom mold is VERY expensive. Find a tank from a company like Moeller as close to the size you would like need and make it work.
