Quotes for an aluminum fuel tank for my sailboat were all over the map. A couple of them were over $1,000.00 (plus shipping). Roland was low bidder so I sent him my sketches and he was able to start immediately. He had a couple of questions so he called me and I sent him a clarification photo. He took care of the details and shipped my tank within a few days. I opted for the external paint job. When I saw the tank my first thought was that it was a shame to hide the tank in the bilge where no one will be able to see it! The welds were remarkably small and uniform. The dimensions were all correct so the tank fit perfectly. The only negative was that he somehow over calculated the tank volume and presumably this led him to conclude that a baffle was necessary. There is no particular problem with having a baffle and it will help to limit the fuel slosh when I encounter the inevitable powerboat wake.
I recently ordered a fuel tank from an internet add. I was very surprised how I was treated as a new customer with this company, They called me and to make sure that the tank would be everything I was expecting. I was ask to tell them what I wanted which would be very difficult so I drew a picture of the tank I wanted. Roland looked over my terrible print and called me back and sent me a picture of the beginning of the tank and it was spot on. Great service and built above and beyond my expectations. I would recommend this company to anyone and the price was extremely competitive. I need one for my other boat and will be calling them back for another one. And by the way I am a certified welder and this is excellent. Thanks Roland, will call you soon.

I could not find a replacement tank for my Sunbird anywhere. Carr Enterprises gave me a very reasonable quote for a custom built belly tank. It arrived shortly after I ordered it, exactly as promised, and is of excellent quality and workmanship. I would order from them again, but hopefully this tank will outlast me! It certainly looks like it will. Thanks for your attention to detail!
I sent the sales manager a detailed schematic of a much needed replacement tank for my old 17\' Angler fishing boat. The price was very reasonable and completed within the two week period as predicted (fast construction and a price below other known manufacturers). It arrived in a well-protected box and all specified requirements were met, a very good tank, it will last longer than the 10 year average. Roland, the sales manager was very cooperative and offered valuable structural advice, highly recommend Carr Enterprises for custom fabrications.
