    10 Gallons of Reserve Fuel in 300x/lx Front Storage Compartment

    So I was messing around tonight and found that I can easily fit two 5 gallon VP jugs of fuel in the front storage area. I can not fit the storage bin however. Is there any issue with this that you can think of? I figure I will lay a storage blanket under the jugs and wrap them up in the blanket. Pretty cool! Here's a pic:

    You can actually fit 15gallons with the right type cans and keep the bucket in. I have pics here somewhere. The ski rides nose heavy at slower speeds but fine on the plane.

    When they say the Ultra is "The Bomb" I do not think they had this in mind.

    The bin also acts as a sealing point for water when it comes over the bow. The gasket on the front hood won't make enough contact with the lip that goes around the storage compartment. Couple that with the fact that there is only a tiny hole to drain water from the inside bin and it can cause issues. I don't see too many issues if your doing a smoothwater run, but any sort of chop will cause issues as I've stated, and as others have stated about the gas spilling.

    The sealing gasket still makes plenty of contact with the storage compartment. It's not like I'll be riding in 7ft swells lol. It takes quite a bit to get water to come over the bow.
