Default Chris cat fuel capacity?

i just opened the rear seat and there are 2 separate fuel tank underneath... sooooo small its like the ones in a small fishing aluminum 12 feet boat!!!

it looks like they are only 12 gallons capacity tank each when i try to read the old unreadable stickers on them!!! I feel like only 24 gal total for a twin engine boat is just.... not enough?

is there another tank hidden somewhere? What are the usual total fuel capacity of those old resin bucket?

thanks!

Mine was 100 per site total 200gal.

now they are modified smaller 65gal per site
to get more cabin size. Also tank's are now ready
for ethanol usage.

driver seat is on tunnel left and right seats are on
Pontoon side's. Tanks are underneath left and right
seats (in pontoons). No tank in tunnel line.

started taking them out this week... capacity is not written on the tanks... but found 114 gal total on internet specs... wonder whats the range at cruising speed... must be around 25-30 gal / hour right? 3 hours max? might even be only 2 hours running 4000-4500 rpm ? wondering if i should re install the 2 small 12 gal extra tank underneath the back seat... what do you guys think?
