36' Grand Banks Fuel Tank help

Anyone out there who has already has measured, photographed, sketched or made specs for their old fuel 200 gallon tanks in order to get new tanks that would be willing to share them with me??

The Welding shop asked me for the original tank's measurements and specs in order to make 4 new ones to replace the 2 old ones.

I'm not physically able to get down in the ER/bilges to obtain the info.

Any help would be much appreciated.

You should ask the same question on the GB site - you won't be nearly the first to have had that done. Don't forget to measure the doorways, that will be the minimum size.

They're not all the same. One boat's measurements can vary from another's.

I'd measure (or get measured) my own boat for the requirements.

And, like Xsbank says, measure the width of your saloon door. The tanks have to be slightly less than that measurement. I also had to remove the port-side handrail on our GB-42 in order to get the replacement tanks into the saloon.
