Fuel tank finally finished


Recommended Posts

The welds are not the prettiest but they do hold pressure.

It was funny when i presure tested it i filled it up with water. I had a mate put his hand over the inlet spout whilst i pumped the outlet with the compressor.

The sides started to bulge.

When he released his hand a fountain of water at shot out of the tank and hit him squarely in the chest. Neally knocked him off his feet.

Yep its only been cut out of the boat for 2 years ready to weld up

It was useless because of its design. It had a bung in the bottom. To empty it you opened the bung and the blood and water just went into the hull. Dam stupid if you ask me.

I just use the esky now.

Yes the bait tank/live well is another project. lol

The old 1 is out the bait board is out. The design is done. Might finished it sometime in the next 2 years. lol

Been using this as an excuse not to use the boat for some time.

Been thinking i dont even need a boat as i Have friends with boat. There you go Rob a perfect excuse for you to put NO Name on the water. lol

I didnt put any baffles it. because of the v shapped bottom and where it is positioned in the boat it should have little effect.

Only problem with the V bottom is putting in a fuel gauge. The first half of the tank will seem to last forever the second half will disappear on the guage very quickly.

Only way i can see to overcome this is to put a fuel flow metre in line.
