HOW TO MEASURE, DRAW, OR ORDER A CUSTOM TANK

STANDARD STOCKED TANKS ARE MOSTLY OF FIVE TYPES

1) FLAT BOTTOM STANDARD TANKS

2) 'V' OR SPECIAL SHAPED BOTTOM TANKS

3) ABOVE DECK OR FLOOR (OUTBOARD) TANKS

4) SADDLE OR SIDE MOUNT TANKS

5) BOW MOUNTED TANKS

SEVERAL ARE JUST STANDARD ALWAYS AVAILABLE TANKS STOCKED AND EASY TO ORDER BY PART NUMBER

BUT, ONCE YOU DECIDE THESE ARE NOT GOOD THEN A CUSTOM DESIGNED TANK IS AN OPTION.

THE WAY TO MEASURE YOUR TANK IS HERE

FIRST DECIDE IF YOUR ALUMINUM TANK WILL HAVE A FLAT BOTTOM OR A 'V' BOTTOM.  THE FLAT TANKS CAN

BE DETERMINED BY AS LITTLE 3 MEASUREMENTS.

'V' BOTTOM TANKS NEED MORE  MEASUREMENTS.

 

WE HAVE SUPPLIED FORMS TO ORDER THESE SPECIAL

TANKS AND CAN THEY BE FAXED TO US FOR QUOTES.

THE CONFIGUREATION OF THE FILL, VENT AND SENDER

CAN BE ON THE QUOTE  BUT THEY DO NOT CHANGE THE

COST AND SO MAY BE LEFT OFF UNTIL THE PRICE HAS

BEEN SEEN AND ACCEPTED.

 

A STANDARD TANK IS GUOTED ON FORM #DESIGN2

AND CONSISTS ONLY LENGTH, WIDTH, AND HEIGHT.  THE

HEIGHT DOES NOT INCLUDE THE FILL TUBE.  

YOUR NAME,WITH PHONE AND FAX WILL GIVE US A CALL BACK FOR YOUR QUOTE OF TANK.

IF THE WIDTH IS DIFFERENT ON THE TOP AND THE

BOTTOM BOTH SHOULD BE LISTED AND IF THE

OFFSET IS EQUAL OR IF THE OFFSET IS TO ONE SIDE.  A

SMALL DRAWING WILL HELP.  IF THE LENGTH TOP AND

BOTTOM WE WILL EXPECT THE SAME.

NOTE.

 

'V' BOTTOM TANKS REQUIRE A FEW MORE NUMBERS TO

QUOTE THE PROPER DESIGN.  THE TANK HAS TWO

HEIGHT NUMBERS, THE CENTER HEIGHT AND THE HEIGHT

ALONG THE  EDGE DOWN TO THE BEND. THE LAST

NUMBER REQUIRED IS THE WIDTH ALONG THE FLAT

ACROSS THE BOTTOM.  IF THE BOTTOM IS A PURE 'V'

THNK THE BOTTOM WIDTH IS ZERO. THE DESIGN1

IS USED TO QUOTE 'V' TANKS.

 

OUTBOARD TANKS ARE DIFFERENT BECAUSE THE FILL

NECK IS ELEMINATED AND A VENTED CAP IS USED WITH A

MECH GAUGE IS BUILT IN. USE DESIGN3 TO QOUTE

OUTBOARD TANKS.
