    Default Extended-range collapsable fuel tanks...

    Whoa! Check these out. I didn't see the fabric thickness or how it was welded/glued shut. These might be just the ticket for those guys who want to check out Montague but don't have the range with stock tankage...

    Very tempted as the price is good.

    So are these approved fuel continers? Like legal to take through tunnel in the open? I did see how he can make them to fit inside a fish box!

    I asked him and he said he has a 50 gallon one made to fit in a kingfisher fish box.. They are not approved fuel containers, I want one just to get the extra barrels off the deck. I am not ordering one now, but i will keep him in mind for later.

    When I used to fly airplanes in the 80's, guys would use air matresses for fuel cells and fill them with gas to ferry planes to England. They weren't approved either but they seemed to work. Guess you could put an air matress on top of the cabin and extend your range a ways.

    I would do some reading on the material he uses. Doesn't sound very safe...I could be wrong

    Seems every company I've looked up uses 1.0 - 1.2mm TPU material

    TWB,

    This one might be more like you were talking about: http://anchorage.craigslist.org/boa/3883609907.html

    Looks like a good opportunity for our limited-range fellow boaters to see Hinchinbrook, Montague and the Western Entrance.

    No same one. The original ad was deleted but above a guy questions the use of material, I was just stating that the materials seems to be of the same type used by several other companies.

    TWB,

    The first listing (now deleted) was for a locally-manufactured fuel bladder. This one is produced by a larger company that has been in business "for over 30 years"...just look at the site: www.arm-usa.com

    Correct. One ad was for a local bladder, the second was for a L48 made bladder.

    We are tracking...
