Spare fuel cell
Has anyone considered replacing the rear storage tray of the GTX/RXT with an apporx 3 gallon fuel cell? My idea is to make it set on the hull just as the tray does, then weld aluminum to have it go down towards the driveshaft. I'm not thinking of maximizing the fuel cell for maximum fuel storage, but 3 gallons would make it light enough to lift out of place and pour into main fuel tank, in the case I run out of fuel while cruising.
Any ideas? Anyone tried this? If so, will you post some pics?

Yes, that'll work. Now to find someone to weld aluminum and take pictures and rear storage compartment.

I have one mounted in the front storage compartment of the race ski, has a separate pump to add it to the main cell. I have also seen them in the same location that use a vacuum line to transfer the fuel between the two . . . those FRIEBE FUEL CELL's are really nice too. I am sure he could put one together for you.

I was wanting one that replaced the stock air box in size and added about 4 extra gallons.

Thanks boys. I am looking for a simple spare fuel cell, not anything that will require another pump, etc. I don't plan on ever needing to use the fuel, and will only be used as a reserve on long cruises.
I can put a red 2 gallon can (like used for lawnmowers etc) in the front storage tray, but I don't want to go that route.
