Hi, Everybody
I want to thanks everyone for the good guidance and knowledge given to me through this forum. Special thanks to JimH for creating this site.
Today I purchased my MT170 with the standard 90Hp 2cycle engine plus the Mills Top and 24gls gas tank. The rest I want to design myself with time. Special thanks to James for answering all my Emails at home.

Congrats! We also are new owners 2 weeks w/ 10hrs. Relearning trailering upgraded to surge brakes! Fits into our 20' garage w/ a swing tongue. An amazing machine, able to handle sizable seas with portability!

Chaimemet! I too have 10 to 20 hours on my MT 170... How soon did you wait to up the rpms from 3500 to say 4500??? and can she go to say 5000rpms??? (WOT)??? Can she go 3500 rpms in a 1-2 foot chop/swell??? Also what does everyone find to be a manageable draft??? 12"??? with the prop up some??? Been fishing the Chesapeake flats and bouncing off the muddy bottom... The Cow

You mention a 24 gal tank? What model/brand and if possible could you send pics of the install. I have a new 170 in route replacing an 87 Montauk. Would also like larger fuel capacity. Thanks.

It is a Pate tank and was offered to me by the dealer. Other members in this forum got the 27gls Pate tank instead of my 24gls.
You can order it from the dealer or by calling Pate directly.
Check this out.

I just wanted to thank those who gave information on the new 2003 MT170 especially TOBASCO. I spec'ed my MT170 based on his info inc the Pate Tank,& the 90hp 4 stroke and bimini top. I love it, and am looking forward to fishing with the grandchildren.

FOR YOUR shouldn't fill your Pate tank to the top. Leave a few inches for expansion. If you overfill and it runs on the deck your boat will have fumes for days especially if it runs into the drain.

That's the main reason I got the 27 gallon tank which I usually never fill past 25 gallons.
