My thinking at the moment is that for an outboard of more than 100hp, then an under deck tank is probably the most practical due to the required size. For < 100hp, then two plastic above deck tanks is probably OK for day trips. Also, there is the expense of an under deck tank at about 800 (fitted).

Is it possible to fit a plastic tank inside a single jockey seat?

Yep, I have the Tempo 70l plastic mounted in my single seat jockey. Great place to have it out the road. Breather on back of console high up and a small round waterproof hatch above the filler cap to access hose connections and cap for filling.
Roll up to the petrol station, open hatch and unscrew cap and fill, no hassle
