Did you find a solution to your problem. I've got 2006 X15 with the same problem. I have tried at least 10 different epoxies, tank patch, glue etc. Nothing will stick to this plastic!

I repaired a polly tank on a radiator reservoir for my RV this last winter and it is still holding up.
Get yourself a heat gun that will get hot enough to melt the polly, and weld the tank back together.

Just make sure it is a ballast tank and not the gas tank

Grant try taking your boat to a radiator repair shop (Fingers radiator on route 130 maybe?) and see if they can repair it right in the boat. I'd hate to see you cut-out that tank but I guess that's a last resort.

I would like to revive this thread as my 06 X2 is leaking in the exact same spot and I have tired a couple of different options to seal the crack with the same results as the original poster. Has anyone managed to fix a leaking KGB tank? Or have any suggestions that are different than what was already tried?

I friend of mine had his 07 tank start leaking about 3 or 4 years ago. The dealership had his floor marked up to cut into it to repair the crack. At the last minute, they went another route. They had a guy come in and plastic weld it. I'm sure if you called around, you could find someone in your area who has the tools to weld polyethylene tanks. He just sold the boat a couple of weeks ago, and it was still holding strong.

Bungee55, wow! Amazing piece of engineering, but, wow!

Who fabricated the piece? Did it work?
