I know this is posted down on special parts but had a couple of ?? guys/gals

I just had a partsoverload experience at www.marinesurplus.com

Here's the question. Since Bayliner has a rep for their aluimium fuel tanks spring'in a leak do I go ahead and buy one to be proactive ? I've been putting off redoing the cabin floor cause I've been afraid as soon as I do I'd have to tear it up to replace the fuel tank :hammer GOD know I hope I never have to take on that project but I know several here have, not so sure I could or would want to tackle that one :o But there are alot of good parts discounted there whats yall opinion ???

I've heard rumors about a "bayliner outlet store" near Monroe for years, legend has it that it was the brother of the guy that originally founded Bayliner way back when, and this was how they disposed of surplus items. Sort of like a marine "Boeing Surplus" , which is now closed, but if you can image a huge warehouse with a little bit of everything either part of the airplane itself or need to build it. Of course with the internet, etc, they've found more profitable ways to dispose of stuff.

His personal data shows it to be an 89 2655. That boat has a 105 gallon aluminum tank. Far as I know there ain't no 100 gallon poly tanks. Think about 100 gallons of fuel sloshing around an unbaffled poly tank...

Steve, your boat is now 21 years old. There's nothing wrong with the quality of Bayliner's aluminum tanks, nor with their installation. But 20 years is a good lifetime for any aluminum belly tank. If you're going to do extensive work on your 2655 then it would be prudent to begin by replacing the tank. Yours might last another ten years, or it might be within months of developing pinhole corrosion leaks.

The tank in my 89 2655 began leaking in 2004. My boat had apparently been docked in salt water since it was new, and the immediate prior owner had only the factory bilge pump setup that would not pump the last one or two inches of water out of the bilge. Tank replacement took a lot of sweat but didn't require much skill. I followed excellent instructions with pictures that BigBabyLou posted in our Projects Topic section.

He's Orin Edson's brother (Wade Edson).

He's been liquidating marine businesses for years. He's not connected with Bayliner in any way, but he gets some good stuff. He sells everything at 50% of retail. He has SCADs of Weaver davits and standoffs and other cool stuff out there.

I have no idea if it is baffled.

Usually when I read about a boats tanks being baffled it is on higher end production/custom boats...like Tiara.
