When Jim Smith founded his welding shop in 1972, there was no way to know how fuel tank fabrication would play such an integral part in his business’ growth. From the fuel crisis era’s need for alternate fuel storage to today’s needs in the marine industry, Sunshine Welding has gained experience and expertise along the way.
Sunshine Welding is the industry leader in the fabrication of marine tanks. Either custom tanks or production tanks, you can be assured you are getting the highest quality available on the market today. Custom aluminum fuel tanks are fabricated from a drawing, or we can use your old tank as a pattern.
We use 5052H32 marine grade aluminum and more of the latest state of the art materials for the fabrication of our fuel tanks, such as Stewart Warner compatible sending units, Latrobe NPT couplings and the highest grade stainless steel mounting hardware. Each aluminum fuel tanks is then pressure tested to 5 PSI, above federal regulatory standard, to assure no leaks. Each finished tank receives a Coast Guard label with manufacturer’s information, material type and thickness, capacity in gallons and date of manufacture.
We also offer stainless steel and aluminum potable water tanks, gray water tanks, black water tanks, holding tanks, universal hydraulic tanks and any other tanks that may satisfy your needs. Sunshine Welding builds all of our tanks with the finest material and machinery to keep us on the leading edge of technology, insuring years of safe, worry-free performance, as well as providing our customers with the best value for their investment.
