If Chris has the same deck layout as me he could put a fuel tank in the bilge.
Mine would take 135l tank without affecting my transducer or bilge pumps as I did consider it.
No idea what the layout is under your deck I"m afraid Andy.

Hi, I did not measure the size of the fuel tank under mine,but would easily have held over 100lts of fuel,I thought of taking it out and dropping the floor giving me more room in the cabin,as I will only use the cabin for shelter,dropping the anchor and makin a cup of tea,decided to leave it in. I sealed all the hoses with silicone and left it in for bouyancy. I have since glassed over all the inspection holes and have a new non slip floor. I am going to use the old seat cushions as templates and make some new ones. I to, have decided on two 30lts tanks at the back of the boat under the transom well.
