    Default Gas Tank/ Motor Replacement

    Tore the boat apart late last year hoping to be down only a few weeks but ran into a financial hiccup a week into it. Fast forward 6 months and we are a few days from splashing her. Original plan was to go with new 300 Yamaha's but was able to find a local boat manufacturer that needed alot of A/C work and had a pair of leftover 2010 250 yamaha 4 strokes with all new rigging and electronic throttle. Thankfully the deal worked out sweet for both parties. A family friend also does great work on boats and needed new A/C's on his shop so we worked a deal there as well. All new tanks and decided to increase the size of the center tank for trips to the bahamas when the extra 30 gallons pays off. All new non skid as well. Pics of progress so far.

    Looks good. How'd you get an extra 30 into the center? Doesn't look like you needed to extend into the console? Did you extend it rearward into where they sometimes put the in deck livewell?

    2002 31' Contender.

    Tank was extended towards the stern and new bulkhead glassed in(see 3rd pic in 1st post), the hatch was extended as well towards the stern to give easier access to bildge/bait pumps.
