    Replacing a gas tank on a 1994 17’ center console

    100% agreed. It’s all about time, materials and level of skill involved. Then there is the greed factor which is another conversation. Also if you want to see how much foam was in there. See pic. It’s was 3” thick on the bottom layer

    That’s a pretty good deal at 4 k. I’m in Southern California and I would expect it to be right around 7k. Here is an example of costs. I got a quote for an aluminum tank 3/16” thickness at $40 per gallon. That’s double what I was expecting and therefore, that didn’t happen.

    The hoses are definitely being replaced. I couldn’t imagine paying for a tank replacement. This would probably cost over 5k to do with all the labor involved.

    Step six: Cleaned up and letting her dry for a few days. New tank is on order. Making it slightly smaller in all dimensions so it can be blocked out on five sides. No foam. No coal tar.

    Step five: tank is out and of course a low point in the bottom layer of foam is where water collected and let a huge hole to form.

    Replacing a gas tank on a 1994 17’ center console

    So, it’s obvious the tank was leaking for two seasons. I limped around with a 12 gallon tank on deck. It looked lazy so I decided to replace the tank. Here is the first photo. Derigging everything and removing four heavy batteries. I had to make straps, of course.

    How to remove a console 1994 17’ center console

    Foam is out. I cut it out with a hand saw and chipped at it with a hammer claw. I’ll probably just pry the tank out with a 2x4.
