President 41 water tank replacement

Does anyone have any experience replacing the original stainless steel water tanks on a President 41 with polyethylene? I'm looking to see if someone makes a replacement tank but don't see any in any of the regular manufacturers catalogs (such as Raritan or Ronco).
Thanks
Also any experience replacing the black water holding tank would be appreciated.

If the SS tank is OK , just leaking at the seams , there are many custom mfg of bladders .

This works with fresh , black or fuel tanks.

We had a SS water tank that had a leak. Like FF said, "just leaking at the seam". We pulled the tank and had SS angle iron welded on the bad seam, pressure tested and reinstalled. It was not rectangular plus at 75 gallons with baffles it was easier to repair than replace.
