Respect !
A lot of carefully thought out one-off detailing there. May you be the wizziest 21 footer afloat !
I fitted a 100l watertank under the cockpit sole,so you are still lighter than that !
Are you plannning to upgrade the fual tank to metal as and when ?

I found the fuel tank to be a bit of a problem to be honest. Tek Tanks quoted me around £230 for a custom made polythene tank, which I'm sure is a fair price but more than I wanted to pay. I hoped to pick up something suitable at Beaulieu Boat Jumble but didn't find anything small enough - I only need around 3-5 gallons. I contemplated making a copper tank, but that would also be expensive. The outboard tank will do for now until something turns up.
Took it from the yard to its' mooring today - 12nm with the wind at force 0, gusting force 1 at times, so the engine was running the whole time. Stopped once, probably an air bubble in the fuel line, but it restarted immediately. Very pleased with it so far.
