I am planning a trip soon from the Channel Islands harbor (Oxnard Ca) to Santa Barbara Island, Catalina Island then home to Oceanside Ca.. I am very cautious about how much fuel I will need . If all go's well and we make the 60+Knm to Catalina and am able to refuel great , if not I will need to make sure I have enough gas for close to 100knm to get back to the mainland . I have been carrying 1 6 gallon and 2 3 gallon marine tanks which only adds up to around 10 gallons because you can't use all the gas in a marine tank. The other issue is where to put those tanks. They have been stored in the back of the cockpit at my feet which is not great. My solution so far is to keep the 6 gallon in the lazurite and add 2 3 gallon Rotopax jerry bottles to the back inside of the stern and bolt them in place with their system. This will give me 110knm of range if we have to motor the whole way. Knowing this area though I don't think that's going to happen. One issue may be the mounting plate that comes with it is painted steel so I may make a new one out of Stainless steel later.
