Mark: Thanks but we're good. I used all but 2 strips of the 1/8" you sent me and 80% of the 24"x48" sheet of the 1/4" I had. You're right, the stuff is brutal on saw blades. My carbide blade on the table saw might be ready for the dump.

Greetings,
Mr. LM. Just curious. Why are you boxing in the tanks with the plywood panels? Esthetics? Noise?

Guess the first round is on me in Ft. Pierce.

RT: I know, I hated to cover up those new tanks but I need the area for the mounting of systems. With the shorter tanks, the water heater will go at the aft end. All the other stuff will go back on the wall as it was. Here's a picture before I started of the starboard side looking aft.

Larry: Having that original tank so far out of spec is concerning. I mean...I know there's a bit of difference in every boat, but that kind of difference sure could explain why I haven't heard of a single tank job that fit as expected, even when done by copying that original tanks. What you're doing should take care of it, but If not to your satisfaction, what about expanding foam?

Expanding foam is a no, no.

Why? Does it hold moisture?

If the CPO3 doesn't work, I'll take many ball size dollops of slow cure thickened putty. Place those against the hull then put the tank back. I'll wax the CPO3 first just in case the tank every has to be removed again. This would be the absolute last ditch effort.

No foam for Hobo. It traps/holds moisture against the tank. Foamed-in-tanks was a regular installation practice, years ago, with more failures than successes. We replaced the tanks on our sailboat in 1997. The boat was a 1981 and foam was the reason the tanks rusted out. Water was trapped on the bottom and couldn't dry out

Incredible work, Larry. This is my nightmare job but you're demonstrating that it's doable.

Forgive another armchair quarterback question. If, God forbid, you got substantial water behind or under the tanks, how would it get past the stringer at the base? Will you drill limber holes or is there another way to keep water from collecting at the base? Or maybe standing water evaporates quickly enough and the only concern would be soaked material in prolonged contact with the tanks, which you have eliminated with the GPO3? Just trying to understand.

Thanks for the support. Believe me, it's always welcome and helps when things go a bit south. And don't worry about the questions. They keep me on my toes.

If/when water gets behind the tanks, it will run down to the stringer and run toward the 2 limber holes forward. The holes are just under the nipple. There is at least a 1/2" trough the entire length and I can inspect it by the limber holes. And yes the GPO3 does not absorb water.
