Re: 40' Islander Peterson 1982

pics would be great, but I have a 30' Jeanneau, not the same as your boat!

I'm thinking doug put a 45-50 gal tank in where his was or some such thing. He did get a bit more. with my 16hp motor, .5-.75 gal/hr useage, a bit more than 5-6 hrs of use before wondering if a wave or equal will cause the motor to sputter etc would be nice, hence the 15 or so gals would be nice, even 12 would be better! I've down a few 6-10 hr trips, filling with a 5 gal jug in th emiddle is not fun.


She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!
