Your boat is basically a 35 Cigarette. It utilizes the same hydrostatic/ stability dimensions. Most of the older 35 Mistresses and Awesomes had bow tanks and they were effect in balancing the boat in the dynamic ranges also.. I would go for it if I were you.

I have both tanks in my '36 apache. Would'nt want to be without it. It is nice to have the extra weight in the nose at times. I say have Bobby put it in. You won't regreat it. Tommy

Definitely! If you start to run out of gas on either tank you can hear it, change the fuel selectors, turn on the fuel pumps for like a minute and never drop plane. If they're doing it like they used to the selectors should be at your right ankle, ask your passenger to switch them (that was me if I wasn't driving) or just bend down and do it yourself. Oh and for all of the above - ballast and a reserve, so convenient. P.S. our fuel guages were never "really" accurate below 1/4 of a tank due to conditions, etc. so we were ready for anything. Good luck!
