my old boat, had two on the sides towards the back transom.

that's a good lookin set-up man:)devil i've only got 1 big tank with 2 big k/n filters on it and inlet on both sides. if i'd thought ahead i would've sold it and bought me 2 small 1's that attach to the cover:)sphss

What happened to the bracket situation, Tom?

There is a yellow jet I have seen pictures of that had a puke tank mounted the way you describe...

To catch oil. When you spin high rpm's the oil has a tendancy to puke out of the breathers. This happens alot in boats. Cars dont usually do it because they dont drive down the street @ 5-6k rpms.
