That would suck, I think me and the tank builder would have a serious problem at this point. Keep us posted.

Lesson learned, when someones going to build you something that large, sign a contract. Make them responsible, I build custom furniture and do carpentry contracting and get it all the time, folks want to sign a contract saying ""if this cabinet falls off the wall and breaks my foot you are responsible"
