    I got mine from Patriot Marine in Forked River, Nj if you don't mind taking a little drive. He has good prices and does nice work

      Sunshine Marine tanks in Fl is a supporter of CM, they have built thousands of Mako tanks, ship it up to a business address.

        Has anyone ever heard of Atlantic coastal welding??

        I have to call Sunshine Monday and see what their story is also... I will get a quote from patriot also...

        This is seemingly not as simple as one might think... as with all things...

        My tank had holes in the top...!!! Where the fuel hose was lying on it... wasnt a wet foam problem it seems...

        Thanks for the help...

              wow... ok patriot sounds like its inexpensive on the list.... I called sunshine but am waiting for a call back for a quote.... but their turn around is 3 weeks... Speedytanks is 5 to 6 days... and they are here in the Northeast... I can go pick up the tank...

              So... I'd like to use Sunshine as a supporter of the site... but not sure its economical yet??

              Speedytanks also includes coating of tank and instal materials which sounded like a nice thing... and the tank completely coated and prepped was like 1800... I know others are cheaper but have to be shipped as well...

                Sunshine is the gold standard.

                Speedy tanks recommends straps to hold their tanks, and does things a bit differently as I recall.

                If you ship to a business, Sunshine isnt too bad on shipping $$

                  yes they were the cheapest around south jersey for me. Nice guy, he's done about 3 friends tanks that i know of and they all came out excellent. i went and explained what changes i wanted, great to work with. 2-3 week turnaround too though so hopefully next week its done for me.

                    yeah I'm still waiting on Sunshine to all me back... and speedytanks does recommend straps to instal... They seemed to know what they were talking about...

                    As for Patriot I have to still give them a call...

                    I'll see if I can sort out how to post pics I have of the tank being out....
