    No, sadly I never put up pictures of it when I was finished. I ended up buying a 27 gallon Moeller gas tank and installing it underneath the cockpit sole. It barely fit in, and then I built a wooden brace to hold it in place in between the two plywood 'ribs' that run lengthwise on the inside of the hull. Then I lashed it down securely so it wouldn't move, even if the boat were upside-down. It was easy to hook up fuel line, fill line and vent, and I grounded the tank for good measure. It was definitely the best option once I realized it would fit in there, and in July of 2010 I made it from Bar Harbor, ME back to Brooklyn, NY without refueling once! It has been working perfectly ever since.

    One mistake I made was placing the fuel vent too far from the centerline of the boat. It stayed dry, but always looked dangerously close to getting wet when I heeled over. I relocated it the following year for peace of mind.

    Let me know if you have any follow up questions.
