  • 1990 261 Fuel tank replacement cost???????

    Probably gonna make an offer on a 261 in the AM. One thing that we are worried about is the fuel tank. From everything I have read, some have to be replaced eventually. What would we be looking at $$ wise? Thanks, Jay

    a new 180 gal. tank from Atlantic coastal welding was around $1300 if my memory is correct. It is A LOT of work to replace one so if you are having someone else do it you had better figure that cost in as well.

      I'm in the process of having my tank replaced. I'm not doing it myself and the cost estimates range from $5000-$6000.

        Why do you think it is bad? I have a 1990 Mako 260 and my tank is fine. I get absolutely no water or debris in my seperators, so the tank stays. I would at least have to have SOME kind of problem before I bit off on that expense.
