....and the extra length. They do sound very similar.

So do you have one or two tanks under there?
Someone (Plastimo?) does plastic fixed tanks - you could amaybe get a tall one that woud fit under the seat to the full height?

There are two tanks under there. I think you need space for the filling cap. I'm going to go back and measure the exact width tonight. It is wider at the base for a short while (30cm?). Maybe I measured the thinest part at the top to avoid being caught out. There is a 70L tank that is 35cm wide and 30cm high. Maybe, just maybe it goes in but I better be double sure before I order.

There is also the issue for the cables, steering and electronics. As they enter the console at the rear would they go under the tank?

my Hulk tanks are "diamond" shaped in section, the console tapers out. so there is room, granted not a lot of it. My 22l one that lives under the console is a good 10cm narrower than the console, so plenty of space for cables.

I guess the 70L one is essentially the same size as 2 25L ones end to end plus a bit?

I can't find the build pics at the moment but hopefully these pics show what I did. The 70L plastic tank fitted into the console with a hatch being cut in the bottom of the seat compartment for wet storage as shown and a waterproof hatch cut to get to the filler etc.
There was enough room to put the various cables over the top of the tank as shown and drop down to deck level in the wet area underneath the seat to get out the console rear.
It seems to work well, the breather went on a pipe to the console rear and you just lifted the hatch to fill.

My theory was right. I've just re-measured. At the base my console it's 37cm wide and it goes up like that for 30cm. I'd measured it at the top where it was finest to be on the safe side. So yes, there is a 70L tank that I can put in exactly like yours Bruce. Thanks for the photos. I've now got to decide if i'm going to change rib or not.

Remember I don't have a cut out as I specified I didn't want one when I bought the hull and console.
You would probably need to block this up somehow
