I'm still at the research end of my project and I see that my front tank is 55 gals, I'm sure the other tank must be about the same. My questions are 1, if I decide to only use one tank which of the two should I use. I'm concerned about the fact that I'll being using slightly modified 89 200 Johnsons with about 12" of setback and I don't know how it will plane-off and also which tank would give me the best results factoring in such varibles as lift, speed, planning off, and basic handling?
2nd, Is worring about this overkill and not worth the trouble? Being I'm moving the bench seat back anyway it doesn't look like removing the back tank is too hard of a job. I think the front tank would be a lot harder to take out as it looks like the front bulkhead is in the way and the floor is over it?
3rd, I will keep in mind that a lot of people, if I ever sell the boat, may see having only a 55 gal tank as a negative.
PS, I'm pretty sure I willn't remove the second tank but as I always say the only dumb question is the one you never ask!
