Good job getting the old tanks out.* From the looks at things none to soon.* Great pics.* Where are the plastic ones?

RE: Removing old diesel tanks

I am jealous of your great access to the tanks! My monk 36 has a bulkhead between the engine and the tanks, making access a nightmare if they ever needed to be replaced. I'd have to cut out the bulkhead and then cut out the tanks...yuck!

You can see one behind the old tank. It's grey.

None too soon indeed. The bottom and the back had holes in them. I could take out big pieces with my hands, making the job easier.

A little bit of elbow grease, some nice white Bilgecote or similar, a mattress and you could sleep a couple of extras down there.
