I'm hoping to make a nice sized anchor locker under the fore deck but that will be it, the tanks run almost the entire length of the boat!

My mind's been put at ease on seeing the tanks, I had heard a couple of times that total capacity was only 400 litres, not really enough for long distance cruising with twin 225's.

Got the tape out and calculated I've got a theoretical 680 litres, 340 each tank, probably enough to get me to the south coast and back on a calm day.

I also calculated that the weight of a full fuel load would be half a ton!

I'm putting the calculator away now before I start working out how much it will cost to fill said tanks, idle hands and all that!!

I know - lucky buggers. Those are seriously big tanks - I've only got 105 gallons on mine - still gives me a range of over 300 miles though!!!

Think i saw it parked on your drive as I drove past it!! Is it up at red houses?? looks like a serious piece of kit. Are you doing all the work outside or have you got use of a shed??

Hopefully see you on the water this summer. Look out for the 11m Tornado with twin 275 verados going past you at 60+

Regards

Yes I was having a good nose at yours in the marina last year, very nice indeed! In fact I should probably blame you for leading me astray! I didn't realize yours was 11m, thought it was 9.5m

That is mine at red houses, we've got a 2000 sqft workshop just round the corner so it goes there for the weekend. My boss is (fairly) easy going like that

Hi,

I also bought an Arctic 28, but I will convert it to inboard diesel 315hp yamaha. Nice to see the inside of the boat already. I haven't started yet, but will do soon. Pics and suggestions are always welcome.
