Thanks: 3 times
I need to add @ 50 additional gallons of fuel to be able to reach some of the best fishing off Louisiana.
I own the 1999 WA 29 with twin 250 Yamaha's. I was thinking the space in the cabin could handle the fuel tank, is there any drawback to this placement? What is Intrepid's recomendation. Thanks for your reply.

Hi Skippy,

Factory installed auxiliary fuel tanks are really the only safe way to carry additional fuel, so installation at this point would be difficult and costly. I wouldn't put any kind of tankage in the cabin because of the fact that fumes might be able to accumulate. I've heard of some people using bladder bags that sit on deck and can be burned off first, then folded up and stowed on the way home. I can only recommend a properly installed system that follows Coast Guard and ABYC standards. Call me to discuss if you like.

Regards,
