There seems to be a lot of interest in discussing the do’s and don’ts of building plywood and epoxy diesel and water tanks. The conversation continues this week as back yard boat builder, Scott Smith, shows us how he is building his Diesel Duck’s fuel tanks. Scott isn’t worried – in fact, he’s confident in his work and is happy to explain away any worries of the naysayers. This particular boat was designed with the home builder and big box stores in mind – so Scott’s method’s aren’t that of traditional boat builders. Scott doesn’t mind any of that – he’s set out to build a boat and is determined to take that mantra all the way to the diesel tanks that he would much rather build than buy.

TotalBoat does not recommend making your own fuel tanks with epoxy unless you are confident in your own skills and research. Scott Smith has done extensive studying on this building technique.
