Shouldn't be a problem unless you use very small bore hose. I did exactly that in the SR, but to "futrure proof" it, I gave the hose extra length (and the long hose will be fitted to the new boat sometime after next week!
It worked fine, and was a standard 3/8 hose feeding through Merc "bayonet" connectors on the tank & either end of the hose. I just used a short "Merc - Suz" jump lead with primer bulb long enough to get between engine and rear tank, and had the hose end from the front tank dangling from the clamp bracket. It took longer to open and close the vents than to swap the hose!
Reason for using the bayonet type? - They work just as easily with cold hands!
