1989 36' Classic Fuel Tanks info needed

Anyone out there who has already has measured, photographed, sketched or made specs for their old fuel 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.

Once you cut out the old tanks you will have plenty of time to decide on measurements for replacements. You have to clean, paint, check any wires going thru area. Then design and install the new fuel tank supporting structure. You may decide to carry less fuel capacity. Give your self more room to inspect your tanks. And make sure the mating surfaces of support against the new fuel tanks cannot hold moisture against the tanks. I have seen starboard mated to tanks with 4200/5200 sealant. Making sure full coverage so no water can intrude.
