    What is the original weight of the boat?
    What engines did you take out and what was their location wrt the transom, and their weight?
    Ditto, transmission?
    What is the weight of the new engines and how far back will you be mounting them from the transom?

    The point that I was trying to make is that many manufacturers will supply diesel inboards, gas inboards and outboards on basic models. I would really doubt that they would be making location changes to fuel tanks, to accommodate
    the weight changes for each engine source. Additionally many manufacturers think nothing of adding in several hundreds of pounds of gensets, etc and do not move fuel tanks to move the CG
