Who has what in their 20 skipjack? So far I'm only finding a 52 gallon that will fit. I'd like to get 75. I'm putting a Honda 130 on the back of her so, 75 should get me a 225 mile range. Let me know.

They came w/aluminium rectangle 65 gal. tanks. I have the original out in the yard, but wont chance it after its 40 year service. Was planning to have an aluminium tank made for my project w/slightly more capacity and the shape of the compartment bottom. All the plastic tanks I looked at were too wide for the most part. If you find something let me know, I will likewise...

Call Berry's Sheet Metal in Santa Ana. Cliff, the owner, has been building tanks for skippies for years, and has diagrams drawn up for your boat. He did mine for my 24 quickly and pretty cheaply.

Barry's Sheet Metal did the "Original Tank"...Cliff said he had just started w/Barry's right about then I sharpie'd the lettering so it could be read...Check it out!!! I lived in CM back bay in those days. I am feeling "Very Connected" to Skipjack. Glad I'm doing this project

Id recommend going with IMCO in San Dimas. My 65 gal tank was 900$ and they did a great job on my tank for my skippy.
