I sold mine to my buddy but if I remember right I would only be able to pull width x height by looking in the bilge.

I can pull the measurements and then if you can confirm it is 60 gallons you should be able to calculate the length.....

The volume of a cube in gallons is: (Length x Width x Height) x 7.48

You'd have the capacity in gallons (60 gallons). Divide Capacity by 7.48 to get the cubic footage of the tank.

60/7.48 = 8.021

Now with 2 sides of the cube, you should be able to calculate for the third side.

Let's say your two measurable dimensions were 1 foot high by 2 feet wide and your cubic feet was 8 (as per the example above)

calculation 1: [Cubic feet / height]: 8/1 = 8

Calculation 2: [result of calculation #1 / width] 8/2 =4

Calculation 3: [result of calculation #2 / itself] 4/4 =0

Your length would be 4 feet.

I was taught any number divided by itself equals 1 not 0.

Sure, in a world where 0 isnt' an integer, I guess. LOL!!!!
