Move the fuel tank up front behind the box. Shorten the box a little and leave an overhang that will cover the tank. I had narrow aluminum tanks that went from rail to rail. Hole shot was so much better with the forward weight.

Yes. I've contemplated moving my batteries to the bow hatch.

Those 3 cylinders run forever on a teaspoon of gas. My brother had an older 75hp and you could not beat it on fuel unless you ran it wide open everywhere you went. I believe that is why my 90e-tec is great on fuel also.

I had that exact model. It will run skinny, it is super stable and will beat you to death in even the smallest chop. I wish I still owned it. Good luck, you got a good boat there.

Haven't done too much. Cleaned it and installed new tires. I did get the motor running. Carbs should be done from getting a complete rebuild any day now. Ordered a new fuel tank (19gal), steering cable and helm and an updated SS steering wheel. Rebuilt the fuel pump and water pump. Got the tilt and trim to function. Picking up controls/harness today. Plan is to raise the console 8-10". After I get that done I should move a lot quicker.
