Moeller 32 gallon low profile tank

Post by thb » Thu Aug 23, 2018 9:25 am

I have a low profile moeller 32 gallon tank which I do not need. It measures 66-1/2 long by 16-1/2 wide by 8 inches high. With the fittings on the top angled at 90 degrees it would fit in a 10 inch high space. It has the fuel sender also. $150 bucks and its yours. This tank retails online for $439.

Due to large size buyer will have to pick in up in Steinhatchee, Fla.

Re: New Moeller 32 gallon low profile tank/ Rub rail

Post by thb » Mon Aug 27, 2018 8:21 am

I did not mention in the original post but this tank is new and has never had fuel in it. It could be used for a water tank if someone wanted to. Not much interest in it. Oh well. Make me an offer.

Wife says I must pare down and get rid of stuff I don't need. Who knows as I guess I am hoarding stuff which may come in handy one day.

I also have a 50 ft piece of white rub rail which is semi rigid with white insert. Do not intend to use this on the FS17 so someone make me an offer. I can not even remember where I got it.

Got to keep TOWMBO happy hey.

Regards
Tom

Tom that looks like that is a 2006 tank? If so it will mean that the compartment will have to be vented. It was only a couple of years later that the USCH and ABYC came up with standards that required tanks to be nonpermeable to gas vapors and eliminate the requirement for vented compartments.

Correct me if I am wrong and the tank is a newer one, which do meet the USCG, ABYC and NMMA standards for permeability.

TomW1,

I bought the tank from another builder in Alachua about 6-8 years ago so you are probably right it is a 2006 tank which would have to be in a vented compartment. Not a show stopper with our builds as one can plan for this from the start. It is way too large for most of the popular smaller BBC designs. Could be used for a fresh water tank if one wants to shower off after being in the salt water. It has never had fuel in it.

CatfishHunter,
I thought it might be too big for your XF20. Maybe in that center seat area is what I was thinking. 15 or 20 gallon would be better size for your boat.
