Ring 20 fuel tank

Hi there I have a friend with a ring 20 that has a 120L tank up the front of his boat and we would like to know if any body else has the same and if so how much difference would it be compared to having a tank in the back any advice would be great many thanks

Ring 20

Not a Ring 20 but my old Ring 18 and now my current 21 both had fuel tanks in the bow when I bought them. One of the first jobs I did on both of them was shift the tank to the stern. Found both got on the plane a lot faster.
The 18 ended up with a bow ballast tank as it was twitchy in choppy weather but at least then you could control the weight up front. The 21 sits as solid as a rock with nothing up front.
