I have a 32 Blackfin w/3208 Cats and need extra fuel for canyon trips. I am very interested in any info on fuel bladders. Does anyone use one? Can anyone give advice on using them or brands that are quality. Thanks.

They make large above deck gasoline tanks, ie 25 gallons and probably even larger.

I'd be more inclined to just add sub-deck or saddle fuel capacity or mabye jerry-jug if it's only a trip or two a season, but above deck tanks could be an option. Once emptied they could be stored up on the bow or hardtop.

I forgot who it was but someone converted their fresh water tank into a fuel tank. I thought that was genius for a fishing boat. Carry your own freakin fresh water.

This is now my second year using the 100 gallon pillow bladder I purchased from pillowtanks.com Its very easy to use if u have the proper space for it. I strap it on the hardtop of my 33 wellcraft coastal. We fill it up and when we get out there attach the hose which is the same as a normal gas station hose with a handle and everything. once attached just hit the ball valve and let her flow. I highly reccomend one of these ONLY if you have a perfect spot for it..it is a giant pillow bomb and if handled incorrectly....yea...

fuel tanks...

I don't know, the thought of those pillow things freaks me out a little. And even putting something filled with fuel up above me.

I would think there would be some room somewhere on a 32 footer to put an auxiliary aluminum fuel tank and valved for convenience for switching where you take fuel from.
