A friend looked into them for his last boat. Super expensive. I want to say 55 gallons was around $2600. When compared to our local custom aluminum tank builders that charge $8-$10/gallon, they were 5x more expensive!

I found that having two old wire loop nets were the ticket to help dock. Worked great with the kids and by myself. Cut the net off and you have a handle and "lasso" to grab the piling. helps to keep the boat off the pier too. The kids were able to help using the nets....

I bet they are spendy but I like the custom shapes available. I'm thinking a pair of outside stringer tanks might be sweet. Don't see why you couldn't draw from both simultaneously to avoid listing.

One thought is to make the opening the same width as the outside of the stringers. That way you can run the splashwell sides down and tie into the stringers making a very strong transom. I can't remember the dimension off the top of my head but if you have the book you can figure it out.
I did this with my boat, however, I made my cutout 28" wide as Renn specs in the book. I ran my splashwell sides down the inside faces of the stringers. If I could do it again I would go wider to the outside faces. 28" is too narrow for most outboards. My old Suzuki dt115 fits but when I upgrade to a new motor I will be very limited in choices. The DF140 will fit though, so that's what I'll likely end up with eventually.

Interesting thread! The ATL Bladder system was very interesting. I am going to send them some cad drawings to see what it would cost to have the tank created by them.

I make the transom opening 30.25" wide for a single motor.  You might be able to go less but I've not had anybody have a problem with this size.
