Laurin Koster 26' - Reconfigure Tankage

I'm doing a complete refit interior/exterior over the next year.

The boat's tankage is 10/10 water/fuel. I'd like to increase her capacity to 25/25.

I'd like to place the water tank/bladder under the front v-berth, the rest of the v-berth is a storage area, and I think I'll keep it that way.

For the fuel tank/bladder, I'd like to build a custom shelf that allows for a horseshoe shapped bladder to wrap around the the stern/cockpit area underneath the combing.

The cockpit has storage locker doors on the seats, and the floor is removable to access the 1 Cyl 10HP Yanmar.

Does anyone see a problem with this configuration?

Will this configuration cause hobby-horsing and/or balance issues?

Here is a link to the 32' version of the boat on Sailboat data, the configuration/lines are the same as the 26' version: LAURIN 32 sailboat specifications and details on

I'm also attaching a photo from the Laurin Koster site.
