Default Aluminum gas tank fabrication

Looking for some recommendations on having an aluminum tank made for an older Aquasport near Wilmington. Thanks

Used them in a rebuild. Perfect tanks, came epoxy coated. Very good quality.

Awesome, I'll give them a call and see if they have dimensions for my hull already. If not I've got the old tank measured.

Replaced a tank a couple of years ago and used Speedy Tanks. Great service and a great tank.

Default Another vote for speedytank.com

Just received my tank from them for a Scout 172 Sportfish. Total cost with shipping to SC, hoses, sender, and some other odds and ends was right around $1k. I also got a quote through boatbuildercentral.com. They were a little cheaper but would have taken longer.
