Subject: Re: help: Re-use of Concrete underground Storage tanks


I was in Panama last year and one of the Navy folks told me that someone
had bought some of the tanks (I believe 567,000 gallons), cut them in
half, and are now using them as barges in the Canal.  Did not see it,
but the story sounded true.
