a larger fuel tank with a gauge is going in so i don't have to carry spare fuel.
the guy who was in the other rib said he saw the cans go up then they were gone.
Yes the wood is still atached to the bottom with about a dozen screws and on there way down they took out another chunk.

Bulletproof they are but it was only the deck could have been worse and i realy need a bigger tank and storage.

Sorry mate, a cabin, i don't think so, i don't think i need any more weight, i don't need to sleep on the boat ( unless the wife kicks me out) but if i do i will have a sleeping bag and some bin bags.

Anyway what would have happened to the cups, plates, kettle and the teapot, the jerry cans are still in one peice.

a freind had an ali one fitted to his boat (hard) and it cost 600.
I have someone else who has offered to make one for me, to fit, i need one big enough to get my sandwiches in. Measured the hole 18 x 20 inches. might get a bag of crisps in as well.

Extra fuel tank...............for a diesel? Are you going TransAt or something? (OK, just an outboard owners joke)
Can't you fit a plastic tank such as the ones at www.bosunsmate.co.uk/fuel_tanks.htm
or
http://www.internationalmarinesuppli...op/itmidx2.htm
They should be more economic than a custom tank. IMS stock St/St tanks as well.
As they say "Every cloud has a fibreglass lining"
I feel another Pacific mega-thread coming up.
All the best.

Hi Mark
the Pacific has only got a 20 gallon tank and no gauge, and a marina that closes the fuel pontoon at 6pm (very handy), that is the reason for extra fuel.
I have a nasty feeling when i go out that i will run out of fuel, if a pipe was to go i would not know until it stopped, but with a gauge you would have a bit of warning.

Thanks for the links, i already use IMS and i will try the other.

Another mega thread, has there been any others,
