    New 280 Sportfish Owner

    Hello, I just purchased a 1989 280 Sportfish with '99 Yamaha Saltwater Series II 200's (OX66). Previous owner reworked a few things in 2010. I look forward to getting her all fixed up. It was strictly fishing but I'd like to add a few cruising items. Anyone know if a specific porta-potty will fit in the cabin. Seems it would have to have a special shaped bottom. Also would like to get bow cushions and I'll have to have a special bow door made. Are there many people out there with 280 Sportfishers?

    A guy on the lake had one down here, he liked his, but recently upgraded to a contender I believe.

    I just happened to go take a look at a 91 280 Angler last week here in Florida. Very nice setup which I liked but this boat needed to much so it wasn't for me. This one had the hatch below the helm where a portapotty was, but was missing.

    I saw a couple of pictures with the portapotty under the helm. I think the '89's must have had a smaller helm. Mine is full of all the wiring, etc. under there. It would be a better spot than under the bow where I'm trying to put it.

    Fuel Tank Size

    Anyone know the size of the fuel tank on an '89 280 Sportfisher? I was told that its 200 gallons. I recently put 100 gallons fuel in it (after I ran out of gas so I know it was empty) and the fuel gauge shows 3/4 of a tank. I should have filled it up but the pump shut off and I wasn't up to going inside and having the pump reset. Thanks.
