[QUOTE=Vincent Vega;482540]That's my problem in a nutshell. I don't know exactly how much fuel is in there and if I fill to the top and assume that the tank holds 22.7 as stated on the tank itself then I've no room to add oil.

Put the oil in first. simples.

Guys, it's not that critical. Stick 400cc of oil in and top the tank up. It'll make absolutely no odds iff you end up at 45:1 or 60:1 for one tank of fuel.

I agree, its not an exact science and a bit more is better than a bit less, unless your sitting in the back on tick over ,lol.

Thanks for everybody's help and suggestions. After repairing the boat and using your advise for the fuel to oil mix we had a great 10 days boating.

Thanks again!!! :-)
