When I was in the Navy, I was stationed at Lakehurst, in a helicopter squadron.
I dated a gal from Tom's River for about 6 months. (1963)

RE: In the Trawler Market

Are roto-molded fuel tanks like Moeller makes considered fiber reinforced plastic? And how does one determine the fire retardant properties of FRP.

No the roto-molded tanks from Moellor Marine are poly or plastic.* FRP are fiberglass and resin I assume.* If the Frp tanks are tested to the USCG specs. they meet the minimum requirement.

It seems to me when a boat catches on fire you have very little time to really save the boat.* Getting the crew to safety probably is high on the list.* It is a something I hope none of us has to deal with.* JohnP

That is why I think the aluminum tanks would be the safest way to go.
