    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

    Replacing a gas tank on a 1994 17’ center console

    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.

    Replacing a gas tank on a 1994 17’ center console

    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.

    Replacing a gas tank on a 1994 17’ center console

    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.

    OEM is 40 gallon from what I’ve been told. It’s 84” x 17” x ? It’s a very long narrow tank.

    How to remove a console 1994 17’ center console

    Thanks guys. It was 5200. I used 6 chisels on each side and went around and around taping. It finally popped. It only took 3 hours. Console is up front now and time to cut the deck and start chipping away foam. The old tank made it from 1994 to 2019 so not that bad. If the previous owner had not...

    21' 1801 Crack in Bilge area

    The hull is laid up fiberglass. There are many layers. The inside of the bilge is the dry side of all the layers. Maybe just the top layer is cracked and not cracked all the way through. It could just be the gel coat on the top layer inside the bilge. It’s probably nothing and just a crack from...

    21' 1801 Crack in Bilge area

    Looks like the top layer or the finish is where the crack is. Look at it very closely to verify the extents.
