Stainless steel tanks will crack if they are not properly supported
As far as I understand it when the SS tank is inside the hull it should be realy tightly enclosed otherwise it may buckle or crack under the extreams (of say a race).
I have talked to many people this morning and my assumption is that if the final decision will be to use tanks on deck to use plastic 70 or 100 ltr tanks.
The idea of SS tanks under deck have to admit does not appeal that much to me but is still under consideration (I'm suppose to be receiving a stress test result from one manufacturer of SS tanks to compare it with one I've got for plastic).
Will post it when (IF) I'll get it.
