Default Something new for my 300xs's

I'm in the process of re-rigging my Skater with a pair of Mercury 300xs's. When I recieved the oil tanks I almost fell over when I saw how cheap the oil tank holders are, coated metal wire! No thanks.
Here are a few pics of the new ones I made, Think I may actually make a run of them as a few guys I boat with want them.

Here is a photo of mine, taken during rigging at Skater, certainly not coated metal wire.

Mark
If the tanks will fit I'm pretty sure I can make a holder for it. I have Concept about a mile from my shop, I talked to them at the Ft.Laud show about making a few for them

Eddie Marine just came out with these. They come in any color. Around $100. I've been rigging all my boats with them.

Wow those are nice as well, appears they are only mountable to the floor?

Yes, floor only. They may leak if you put them on the roof!
