Fuel tank holder

Hi hoping someone can point me in a direction of where to buy a fuel tank holder like in the picture. Looking for ones that hold yahama plastic tanks.

Also what is recommended for mounting these? Self tappers ?

Cheers

RIBase
Call me tight but I'd be tempted to make some (he says with a multitude of half finished projects on the go) out of 1/2" marine ply and some deck eyes with webbing straps.

For holding them down, I'd through bolt, certainly in way of the retaining straps with a backing pad behind to transfer the load.

If you were to put a deck eye port and starboard of each tank as well as fore and aft, you could dispense with the base or replace it with a bit of treadmaster or similar.

Have looked everywhere I can think of online for them, but no luck. Everywhere sells the tanks though. Thinking the tread master and deck eye either side for strapping down is a good option

Yep, I bought 1 last year from Ribcraft to fit a quicksilver tank, pricey but worth it IMHO

Great thanks will give ribcraft a call, not on their site - probably because of the ridiculous price there going to charge :-)
