These ATL bladders look nice.

Marine Fuel Bladders and Auxiliary Fuel Tanks

Could easily do a deck mount in front of console OR I guess could design a more expensive custom one to go into bow/anchor space.
I've seen a couple of these on craigslist in southern California for $150-200 ...I haven't grabbed one yet.

Maybe RyanPratt or one of the lads can chime in, but I don't think the Willard 7m and the ZHT 733's are the same hull, I think for sure that the strake pattern isn't the same...

I know the Hurricane 733 and the Willard 730 are close but they have differences in their chines and and the willard hull changes direction in its last 18"+ and sweeps down holding the bow down better than the Hurricane. the Willard will lose a few mph due to this but we have a 733 and a 733 they are really similar. But i must say im a WILLARD MAN!!

"But i must say im a WILLARD MAN!!" No argument there, but I've never been on a Hurricane for comparison. Both great boats no doubt.

Might need to start a thread on that. Definitely pride no matter which you own.

I have been on both, and would take a Willard every time. Would be a good thread

Still love diesel. Kind of amazed the tow companies aren't sticking with the economy and reliability of diesel. Oh wait another thread.

Ok, so H733 and the Willard 730 are different...but, is it still undisputed that Willard bought their mold from ZHT in Vancouver? (and subsequently, ZHT redesigned their own mold?)

I am still progressing. It's an outboard boat now. Just need to pull the bracket and paint it although the bare aluminum look us growing on me. No, I can't be that lazy and tired of working on it....
