    Thanks. That's helpful info and the link above was helpful as well, but it all seems to be geared toward metal tanks.

    The tanks I will use are poly. They will be under the decks...

    Re: Mounting tanks against hull?

    That does not sound odd at all. I should have thought of it. I walk by them all the time when I go to TSC. With as much weight as the tanks may hold, foam seemed a little light duty to me.

  9. Re: What type of boats are the "Disneyland Jungle Cruise" boats?

    Are those real elephants or the lifelike robots? If I am not mistaken those boats are rail guided using electric motors for propulsion. It's been a few years since I was on that particular ride.
