my old sanger hydro fuel tanks were mounted to the hull with bolts counter sunk with stringer washers thru the hull from the bottom side. i dont know if this was factory from sanger like this but i felt is was the wrong way. anyway i am putting new tanks in my flat and was wondering what the right way to do this... i dont whant any holes in the floors, new tanks are alum round tube type with brkts. thanks for any help r/j

If I remember right Shaun here on the boards glassed some wood on the sides on his boat, then mounted the tanks to that. Or something like that.... I just did a search up in jets for "gas tank mounts" the thread I was thinking of came up on top started by lbhsbz. I guess he glassed the wood to the bottom of the boat. There is another idea or 2 in that thread also.

lots of boats were rigged that way from the factory,
Todd Griggs (ToddnJuzz) did a article in HB a few years ago
called "round peg in a square hole" or something like that.
is was a step by step how to article, I'll try and find it
and scan it for you.

You could build some bulk heads and cut them so the tank sit's inside, like a saddle. And mount the straps to that. You could carpet them or gel coat them. Glass them in good and they will hold the tank full of fuel.
