Tank looks good - too small for my needs though. Who made it?
The manufacturer is in Ocala, FL.

Richard,

Do you still have tank? If so, is it the 12 x 12 x 8 tank?

Capt UB, I have a fuel tank here at the shop that a customer wants to sell but I think it is too big for your purposes!! It is a plastic 13 Gallon Moeller. (Never used and still in original box). Jeff

Thanks Jeff.
I did see that one and it's too big.
The 5 gal tank Richard has will fit if It' the 12 x 12 x 8. I'm putting the small AGM battery up front. This tank will be just right in the back. I'm running a 9.8 4 stroke, so 3 gals. has worked, this being a heavier boat, the 2 gals extra should work out fine.

Just thinking if I do change out the ob to a 15 2 stroke, I call you about that tank.

Hi Captain, your boat is looking good!
I ended up using the 5 gallon tank by creating a pocket in my sole to lower the tank enough to clear the forward casting deck.
Here is a direct link to buy the same tank.
