Looks like my 2002 236 is due as well I called Sailfish, they only had records back for a 2004 236 and the tank manufacturer (still around and in Florida). He said that was a 130 gallon. My literature says 125 on the ‘02
They also had no info to offer on the cutting.
He said he thought the helm has to come off (unless that tank is a funky design with some sort of extended step down, it doesn’t appear so). Looks like the leaning post for sure.
I contacted the manufacturer. We shall see
I found a glass guy who has done quite a few. Hopefully the tank doesn’t tank months (I suspect it will though)
ol Mucky sorry to hear that Hopefully you don’t loose the whole summer.My helm didn’t have to come off .I know different boats but apparently it can be leaned forward and not completely removed if access space is needed.
mine is finally done. I bet this becomes more of a topic on here in the coming years for those without Poly tanks
I called the tank manufacturer They said “we don’t have any of the tanks made, we have the schematics still and can make one, unfortunately we cannot make any one-off tanks right now. We cannot get persons to work.”
So they are busy, doing only their accountS. They didn’t even say “check back in a few weeks. A month, nothing.”
Looks like I’ve lost a summer.
I imagine I can cut the deck, measure or take it to another company to measure and make.
Honestly don’t want to deal with it right now.
Kinda sucks sailfish couldn’t offer any other guidance other than giving me the tank manufacturer.
Maybe they lost all employees that know anything But the schematics too?

I think that's pretty much lots of businesses in the marine field are seeing - lots of work/demand and not enough people to work. That sucks. Might want to get some recommendations for a boat restoration place where they can do it all - get a tank built, do the removal and the fiberglass/gelcoat work.
Did you try to see if your insurance would cover it?

edkath: Anyone ever use Carpet Shield (self adhesive film) to cover where a boat cover snaps meet the side of the boat in order to hep eep the cover in place during tropica storm winds? I don't know what reaction it might have getting it off the fiberglass.
