Fuel tanks

Ive got 2x 25 litre plastic portable few tanks and I always keep a spare 5 litres under the console. If I am only going out for a couple of hours I just take the one but for cruising I find I need both. The trouble is on a 4 metre boat like yours and mine space is at a premium, I usually have one 25l at the bow tied down and one tied at the back of the console.
This is not ideal though! I am considering having a flexible plastic tank in the front of the console with a filler on the outside, my main concern with this is that you have to take the boat to the petrol station.

It looks like I could fit a 62litre in the console - I've seen one on the net with baffles for about 125 - I would guess baffles would make sense in a small rib - not the cheapest but spent less than expected on the boat...

mines a flooding hull, very stable for the size - sits a lot lower in the water mind, takes a little while to get the water out of the hull, not long enough to annoy me ,as im quite gentle on her on initial acceleration from standstill , itll be the same as mine on the plane i reckon though,
