    Wow! The GlasPly population in Madras just increased by 30%, almost as many as in Binford’s and JJC’s yards!

    Thanks all. Seeing traffic re fuel tank replacement and steel vs Alum vs poly. I am a diesel guy, gas makes me edgy in trucks, tractors and now boats! Bore scope inspect and/or low pressure test make sense. Thanks.

    30% increase in Madras Glasply representation! I'm already a "contributor"!

    My 77 19.5’ hard top had a poly center tank and two smaller steel saddle tanks.

    Haha. I was always here. Just silently lurking in the back ground. I think i got discouraged/burnt out. But I have been working on the boat all week. First time in months. I think I have some solutions to my issues. Will be posting up soon
