    Boat should run really good,
    Balance is key...
    And killer Idea by splitting the batteries and tanks...
    Each side gets its own equal weight, & driver to the center...
    Boat should fly nice!!!
    Awesome Job!!!

    Every thing I have read said that this thing will be a hand full at speed. So I am going to do all I can to help it out.

    Will put the batt's as far apart as I can on the floor in the back.

    The final test will be when I jack it up off the bunks on the center pad with the floor jack.

    Will the tanks be gravity feed to the common filter or will you pull off the top of the tanks. I`m asking because if you pull of the tops then when one tank runs empty wouldn`t it just keep on sucking air because it easier than pulling liquid from the full tank? I can see where gravity fed will keep the filter full.
    Also i`ve had two Vectors with one being a comp potato chip and it ran best close to the water. Trim it up and it slowed down. The bottom was stock. It lifted the transom muck quicker in a drag race when trimmed low. I had to fight the urge to trim it up because it felt like the nose was in the water. Vids showed different.

    I will put the fittings in the bottom. With them up in the wings the filter will be level half way up the tank.
    The tanks will also have foam in them to keep the fuel from sloshing around.
    The by pass regulator will keep the fuel circulating at full flow then returned back to both tanks with a T fitting.
    If need be I will put a small sump tank in the boat that will be lower than the main tanks.
    Will see how it works first with the lines just hooked to the filter.

    Her is a pic of the filter I have to use. The front two fitting are the in and are a common rail.

    JMHO use a sump tank or fuel log ahead of the filter to provide a constantly filled common reservoir to draw from .

    Yes it would. A 1/4 turn ball valve on each tank would also prevent the air sucking problem if fuel were to be pulled from the top of the tanks. It looks like dwilfong has it figured out tho.

    I have a service truck for work full of Parker 518C orange nonconductive hose I use on the bucket trucks.
    Have the crimper and all the fittings also. Talked to the parker rep and he said that this hose is made to work with gas or any other fuel.
    Will look kool with the orange hose and the crimped on end for the fuel system.
    #12 hose (3/4) will make for a good fuel log between the two tanks. Then put a T fitting and go to the filter with #6 hose (3/8).
    The hose is rated at 3000 PSI so I think it will be fine.LOL

    The fillet work is done and so am I..............................
    Will save the last lay up of the floor and box for next weekend.
    The prep work takes more time than the layup.
    If I never sand on a boat again it will be fine with me.................................LOL

    I will put a aluminum plate on the floor with the epoxy and some glass lay up over it. It will have studs in it to attach the seat.
    The batt. I will do the same.
    The tanks will be the same way.
    Will show this when I get there.
    The fuel filter and pump. Also the trim pump will get the same treatment.
    Ordered the clamp mid and swivel work from Michael Chapman to day.
    Will go with a single cly clamp and swivel with a bass mid and a two piece adapter cut to 15".
    Will put the new style trim pump with the plastic reservoir in the boat mounted on the transom.
    Only piece missing now is the cowl.
    I have a line on a bridge port style cowl and pan that I think I will use.
    Bobs nose on the 88 2.4 big bearing larg shaft lower that I have already.
    There will be no jack plate. the 15" mid will put the shaft center at the pad level sitting on the transom.
    I will start there and see how it goes before I raise the eng up.
    Have a duel rack ride guide that I will setup opposed cable. have all the wear pieces new and the steering wheel shaft also. I will use the new style cables modified to fit in this rack.
    It is all coming together little by little.
    Can't wait to get on the hook!!!!!!!
