    personally the extreme point of pressure on those 4 small feet are not good for the glass

    having run racks before in ROUGH water,

    results have proved that sitting it on the deck with some silicone none slip matting and straps is WAY better and cheaper, and it share the load so much better.

    Hi Mate Bigdog here from Tassy here. I took my 300 hungie for a ride last weekend. Sucked more juice than bridgeport rotary Mazada with a hole in the tank. This extra fuel tank you have seems like the go. I used a red 20lt Bunnings fuel container and the lunchtime refill got messy and did my head in. Do you still have the ski and the setup? I know your post is a few years old now. Definitely going to give it a go. Probably just need a few more fuel line photos so I dont stuff things up.

    Thanks

    i found this boat fuel tank in my workshop so im doimg all my tests with it first, note; i have found many other tanks and sizes on ebay or in boat shops.
    the one pictured is 45ltrs, im hoping to strap it on the rear deck, i have removed the oem fueltank breather rubber hose from the fueltank nipple and i will fit another shorter piece of fuel hose to this and join it to the oem hose with a quick connect, this will allow easy connection and a bit more hose to work with plus allow it to be returned to oem later on.
    the idea is to run a fuel line from the oem breather nipple to the pick up in the rear tank and run the breather from the rear tank to the oem breather tube keeping it all original utilizing the oem one way valve, the hoses will run in under my rear seat through the rear vent down the side of the hull.
    so as you are riding it is automatically drawing fuel from the rear tank emptying it first, thus no need to unstrap and tip jerrys into the oem tank.
    what i am asking has anyone tried this before other than the yammy guys i know of? also has anyone used the quick connects i have linked too or are there others avaialable that i havent seen?
