I thought I remember reading in here somwhere about a 100 gal tank option instead of the 77 gal tank in the mid 80's 22'outrage hulls is that real or my mind engaging in wishfull thinking? where does the extra volume come from...the bait well?

logjamslam -

I'm assuming the Revenge 22 was similar and I have some 1987 Revenge 22 (87 price list) info on my computer here at work. Real info is at home. But the fuel tank line is blurred. I'm pretty sure it says:
"Extra Fuel Capacity 128 gallon tank (52 extra gallons)with dual withrawal systems (Whaler drive and sea drive model blanks only). Replaces 77 gallon tank and eliminates the aft fish well. Factory installation only.

The extra fuel tank capacity is 129 gallons and is achieved by using the space that the aft fish well would have occupied.

What they did at the factory is use a plug to fill the space in the mold that otherwise would have formed the dam between the fish well and the fuel tank capacity. By using a plug they were able to form the larger fuel tank cavity without modifying the hull after lay-up.

From everything I have heard, the extra fuel capacity design made the boat noticeably stern heavy, especially with twin engines.

All the remaining fuel, no matter how much, is always in the stern end of the tank, placing this weight too far back.

It would seem the WD version would be best suited to this option.

If it was done at the factory during layup looks like It's not an option for me.
Thanks to all for getting back to me with the info, Greg
