I would have to agree, i have a 5hp mercury on my ranger 22 and it moves around pretty well with it. I also had the same problems with the shift levers being so far away, the previous owner of the boat made a little pole with a little metal tab on the end of it to grab the shift lever. Ive used it a few times and it works pretty well but i still normally resort to hanging off the back to shift. i dunno, u may prove to make more use of it. For the external tank issue, when not in use, i keep it stowed beneath the opening into the cabin with my anchors. So far the 2.5 gallon tank has been more than adequate to get the thing in and out of the marina multiple times, and chugging around the bay.
