I have just received my W29 Panga shell. I am trying to figure out the best place to put my fuel tank. I have it midships on my 26 , but my friend has his in the stern ( factory placed ) by imemsa . He gets better fuel economy that i do but i am heavier and have more wind drag. I am wondering how much of his economy ,If any , is because his motor isnt working as hard to lift the bow due to the weight being forward.

I say move it forward as much as possilbe.  These boats ride much better with the nose down in the waves.

Helms deep, did you mean to say stern?  The imemsas I have seen (here in the states) have had the fuel tank in the bow.
