Rinker Captiva Fuel Tank


Nov 4, 2021
Inherited this boat from my grandfather several years ago, he was original owner. At some point the original fuel tank must have failed because an auxiliary tank was installed, won't ever know, he passed long ago. I want to remove the original tank and either repair or replace to return it to origional. The aux tank distributes too much weight to the back and the boat does not function as it should.

What I would like to know is if the tank is removable. From what I see it doesn't look like it is meant to come out. I've tried looking for a solution on the inter webs and unsuccessful. Anyone have some experience with this? Any help would be much appreciated.

Thank you!

Boat is a 1999 Rinker Captiva 192

Yes it comes out but is a lot of work. The tank is foamed in and the foam has to be cut and pried away from the tank. The deck is cut away and then the hard work starts.

Post a pic further away, your real close which makes it hard to get a perspective
