gas tank placement
Where is the best place to put your gas tank in river boat if your looken to go through the shallowest waters. I have an outboard if that makes any difference
Move it around while the boat is in the water to see where it sits level with the driver in it.
Too nose heavy and you will cavitate and slide in a tight turn. Too far aft and you will dig in deeper on the corners.
It's a tough Q to answer as it depends on the hull shape, (flat, Vee, reverse chines, lenth, width, etc...)
Remember too, your load will change as you burn the gas, add gear, people, dog, tackle, on and on.
Is your boat similar to one already manufactured? Could you look at another boat of same style to get an idea?
Again, that's like asking what is perfect boat for AK....no true answer out there.
The middle. We either had our tanks in front of the console (middle of boat) or in the stern. Depends on how much weight we were running. Only about a 12g tank though
Moven it around is a good idea ill try that thanks
Move it around. Every boat is different. My river boat likes the load all the way forward.
