Default Permanant or Removable?

do you guys use portable tanks or permanant tanks..

my glastron as a 6 galon attwood removable. is it worth it to add an aluminum perm. tank?

how long at full speed will it take me to run out a 6 gal tank with a 35?

1959 model

what i meant was, are you planning on keeping the boat for a very long time? or it is just something to get you by till you get another boat? how much of a budget do you have? what else do you plan on putting in or on the boat. what all are you gonna replace? that sort of thing. get the size and type of tank you can afford within your buget. make a list of things you want to do to it, price it out, and make adjustments accordingly buddy. 1fastlsaer and 3d, and zooker and a few others will be a heck of a lot more help to ya too. i am envious of you guys. i would love to be able to get a boat to fix up. but i can't for awhile. maybe in a couple of years. good luck. and pm them folks i mention and get their advise. they know a lot more than i do. trust me on that one.

Permanent tank cost is usually 100 or so more. A perm. also weighs alot more when fueled up. I personally wouldnt recommend the additional cost. On the cables I have yet to get a reply from the one company that most likely has them. The others are using the story "to out of date to stock parts".
