I just found some pics of the uforia Pangas and my hull looks like it came out of the same mold. has those indentations on the side near the bow and the same sweep to the sides and round corners at the transom.

Yep, I'll work on the picture thing.  I found this hull down in Port Aransas Tx. I had been in Corpus looking at new Imemsa hulls when I came across it on craigs list. It was pretty much a stripped out hull but it did have a deck in it. It was supposed to be a sealed deck with scuppers but I opened it up at the transom and found it with about 40-50 gallons of water in it. The boat had never had a drain plug installed. Turns out that the deck is a plastic honeycomb core and is in really good shape. The stringers are longitudinal fiberglass boxes and are filled with Styrofoam as are the spaces between them. The only wood in the boat is some 1/2 inch plywood pads glassed to the tops of the stringers to level the deck. The transom is a solid FG lamination. I'm currently adding a 1" cousa board lamination to the transom and building a casting platform across the stern that will house batteries and two bilge pumps as well as some storage. I will be mounting a console forward, about 18" back from the forward casting deck , leaving a lot of space for fishing in the middle. 29 gal fuel tank under the console, leaning post with big livewell behind console and probably a coffin box type cooler down the middle. Power will be a new 115 Yamaha 4stroke.  this boat will be used mostly for a striper fishing charter boat in north central texas and for some trips to the bay and rigs out of Matagorda. This has turned into a pretty big project but I can see light at the end of the tunnel. I'll figure out how to post pics and start a build thread so I can hopefully get some good ideas from those that have gone before me on a project like this. this could turn out to be a pretty long story...lol..

I bought some from  e bay they are called spiderking rod holders, they look just like these I will take some pics and post.

Curious with how those would install. I've been planning to get one of these for the boat right after we finished installing the new shocks and smittybilt bumper on my Wrangler. Looking forward to the pics.

I have similar performance with mine and believe it is common on most boats.  If you consider how the sending unit works, the size of the tank, and the fluctuation of gas with speed and pitch, you can realize why it is not true to the fuel level.  Fill the boat and run for an average full day.  Refuel and see how many gallons you used.  This is much more trustworthy than a guage.  I have a 20 Super Skiff with a 35 gallon fuel tank.  I have never refilled more than 15 gallons after a full day of running but always top of the tank after two average days on the water or one long day.  You can always invest into an electronic fuel monitoring system if you think it is worth it.   
I have the 20SS also with the same fuel gauge questions.  Like you, I top off the tank after most outings.  I think a fuel gauge in any boat is not going to be very accurate.  I am in the process of installing an I-command gauge to show fuel burn.
