Aluminium fuel tank?

Just ripped a 650-litre aluminium petrol tank out of my boat. It has some corrosion pitting on the lower panel causing it to leak. Anyone know if there is any point to having it repaired? Or know of anyone who does this kind of work?
Hmmmm, just when I though I had it all working perfectly….

Scand: Personally I wouldn't ever repair a fuel tank in a fast boat, just asking for trouble. Do know a little bit about it as we make about 1200 tanks per year. If you are interested fax over a sketch on 01202-665572 with your details and we will do you a keen quote for a new one, we are only in Poole so not too far away.
