Im happy to have found this forum. Looking through it , i see the search feature is going to help my when I am scratching my head, trying to find some obscure info on the 40' I purchased this month. Looking through the posts I had to laugh when I found the 12vAc light issue came up on here as well... that could have saved me a couple days... Anyway, since I got no response after emailing Ocean for structural info of their older vessels, I thought someone on here may know as well. Ive also seen some other resources mentioned on older threads, and will contact some of them as well. I need to add fuel capacity to the vessel and am looking at options for where, other than the cockpit to stow it. The cockpit obviously gets very crowded with more than a 300g bladder sitting there. My eyes first took be to the bow to add another 300-500g badder, both out of the way, and counteracting the poor handling characteristics she'll get with just the stern loaded as well. My main concern is the strength of that roof/deck to handle 3000lbs strapped to it, its al ot as a static force, but with vessel movement it is amplified in many directions. The direct pressure is not tremendous, as ATLs 500g Fuelocker has a 70"x66" footprint, meaning the theyre would be around 0.6PSI but all the othere directions the total force exerts worries me. However a lot of my friends own slightly larger boats with bayboats to 23' cradled in that same position, but They may have special build consideration, just to do that, im not certain. Thanks in advance for any insight, or other considerationsas to where to stow more fuel, until next year when Ill be adding more tankage.
