Welcome to Cruiser Log. We have an interest always in collecting rainwater on the boat. This forum is for cruisers not home owners of course. If you have a boat--how will you collect rainwater on the boat?

With thin stainless tanks, the water sloshing fore and aft sometimes flexes the ends, causing the corners to break down from metal fatigue. Putting a solid 3/4 inch ply bulkhead up against the ends, to stop the flexing, can reduce the problem.
