Aluminum tanks - Installation Tips
the proper way to install an aluminum gas tank
Keep in mind: it's very easy for just a little bit of seawater to get in there and stays there and stays there right up against the loan and that would corrode.
These tanks are actually very susceptible to crevice corrosion which occurs when water comes in contact with the tank and there's a lack of oxygen when water comes in contact with the tank and there's a lack of oxygen and when you up from all around the tank. To keep aluminum tanks some people even go as far, to try to seal the tanker hold in place they put glass around the top.
You can however take down every day and when corrode. Don't use foam around it or anything else - don't use anything that absorbs water, wood etc.
As long as the tank has a Quite good air flow around all aluminum surfaces include bottom surface, contact with seawater will not damage it.
You can secure with your tabs - are straps are already whatever using and if
using straps make sure there's nothing in between the strap on an aluminum gas
they can hold water and also into crevice corrosion. Use straps also and in the bottom of the tank. For this purpose, you can take some neoprene rubber. Then you have all this airspace all around your tank.
