    Default Rogers Bonneville TR restomod project

    We've got a new Rogers project in the shop and it needs a set of stainless fuel tanks. It's getting a total re-rig and restoration to remove all the hillbilly residue from previous owners "upgrades". Anyone have a set of Imco or Russell tanks they'd like to sell?

    Like most of Rogers' hulls this one is a tank, weighing in at 675 lbs with the intake installed in the bare hull.
    Thanks

    Yeah the false floor is waterlogged. No telling how much may be up in front of the bulkhead, too.

    Well weigh it again once. All that junk is out.

    What's up with Capital Punishment?

    Intake is out. Looks like Htp machined it for a shoe and ride plate at some pint and did an excellent job of blending the shoe and shim stack to the opening.

    I also have a Rogers of the same era. Have not had her in the water since '99. By then, she had taken a lot over the years and needed a redo. Over that last dozen years, have been doing just that as priorities allow.
    On the tanks- will be interesting to see how you do that. In the early 90s, I had my tanks cut open, front and rear, and had them extended to increase capapcity. They are not show peices for sure but, did the job. Anyway, while going through the boat, when I got the tanks, I also decide to have new tanks made. The guy who made them built them too big and the seats would not fit so, I refused them. He was upset, though I do not know why he expected me to not have the seats fit?
    So, i ended up having the existing tanks boiled out and coated on the inside.

    Will be watching how you did yours.

    How stuck are you on stainless tanks?

    I have some bullet shaped aluminums and brackets that would be period correct....Hit me with a PM if interested...Thought I had some pictures but can't find them right now....

    My last couple of Rogers hulls had round tanks swapped in place of the original fiberglass units. They work well and don't hit the rear corner of the hull like rectangle ones do. Those usually crack the gel over time. Roger actually put shag carpet behind the tanks in my '71 Cyclone to prevent the tanks from damaging the hull.

    This one is called a Bonneville TR. it's classified as a 19-footer and is distinguished from the 18-ft Bonneville by its dropped outer chines.
