Re: Fuel tank size for San Diego based Coastal

Further quick comment:

I was swayed by all the comments re: smaller tank and was set to go for that. However, I studied the original Bruce King design specs for my Ericson 35-2. He called for a 30 HP engine, and a 22 gallon tank. Since I have daydreams of sometime moving up to a Yanmar 29 HP, my final tank choice was a compromise between what makes sense now vs what migh make sense in future. (New engine seems years away).
