Slimline Fuel Tank

Hi,

I am just in the process of finally sorting the seats out for my boat... going for a delta formation again, triple jockey at the front, with a double jockey slightly behind either side.. giving me seven seats + two bow seats in all.

I am looking to get a fuel tank to fit in the front jockey, but not having much luck on google... can anyone suggest where I may be able to buy some? or failing that, somewhere I can get one made at a reasonable cost?

The triple will be approx 300mm wide, and about 1100mm long. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks

Ben

Ben,

Looks like Tek Tanks may do what you want.

Take a look at these #TT-5644 could be made for the job as long as it's not too high.

Just up near Alton.

Tek Tanks can't do petrol, the regulations won't allow it.
