Replacement of a Boler 1700 Hot Water Tank

Does anyone know an appropriate replacement make/model for a 1978 Boler 1700 HWT? I quickly measured the old tank and it is 18" deep, 13" wide, and 12.5" high. anyone replace a tank recently?

Thanks

Thanks, I assume it is the uburban 6 Gallon model number SW6P? Heavy price tag!

Do I need the door assembly with the frame, or just the door. I am simply replacing one Wh with a new one. Thanks for your help

You need the door flange kit. I ran into a snag when I went to hook up the gas line. On the old tank it attaches to the back upper left. On the new tank its on the front lower left. There was a gap on the plywood support for the hot water tank on the left side. I was able ti move the gas line through the the gap and with some minor bends I was able to get the gas line attached. It was't easy but I got it on.
