Your removeable tanks are a great idea in my opinion.  You would go a long way with 60l alone.

My current boat (5m cat) had an issue with one if its tanks and had to cut the whole floor up,  remove fuel soaked foam etc. Replaced the other tank too in case a similar issue developed.

What a mess and cost!

I've been bitten by stale fuel issues too.

Do you happen to have a photo of your tank?

Sorry no pics yet but I will next chance I get.... They are aluminium and a simple rectangular shape with Tohatsu fuel fittings on the delivery and the breather.

Hi Guys,

Thought you all maybe interested in my version of a fold down shade canopy for the timber tub... the front and back stays, once unlocked via hinged tube fittings, fold up and then after the nut on the rear of the gunnel plates are undone, the whole thing pivots forward to rest on the bow plate. A bit confusing at first, but the only way it will fit in my shed. it looks a tad tall but with the low sides of the OB-20 and the fact that I am 6'-9"........ 🤥 I have no say in the matter!

Stay safe

Trev
