I bought an older Gregor sled last Spring that I have slowly been fixing up. The boat does not have a built-in fuel tank, and I use two six gallon portable containers which are placed on the back of the deck by the outboard.
The set-up doesn't work too bad, but when fighting a fish it would be good to not have the tanks there. Additionally, I have found out that my outboard pump is kinda thirsty, so there have been times when I have had to carry extra fuel in cannisters when running up the Santiam.
So, sorry for the long intro, but finally to my question: would it be feasible for me to mount a tank in my bow? In front of the bench seat there is a somewhat narrow covered space that I think would work well for this. Would this throw off the balance of the boat?
Anybody have any experience at this or have a recommendation for a place for me to buy a flexible type of tank that I could fit under my bow? I live in Salem - so closer is better.
Thanks in advance,
