is your fuel tank outside of the stern?25 GM but I own one so I may be partial. I doubt any of the others have a bigger beam as the GM comes in just under 10’. Mine is an 84 and there is no balsa on it. Solid glass hull, molded top with a foam core roof and the gunnels are foam core. Only owned it since July but I love it. Be surprised if you could find a bigger dance floor on another 25’. Bills 25TJ with a 370 Cummins would be hard to beat tho lol.

yeah does it change any characteristics of the boat when the fuel is full or empty?
Yes the fuel tank is bolted to the transom under the trawl table. When I first looked at the boat I didn’t like it at all but it was mainly because I’d never seen it before. The more I thought about it the more I like it; if there’s ever a problem with it I can just unbolt it and put a new one on no ripping up decks or anything, the boat is a gasser so it more or less eliminates the possibility of gas fumes collecting in the bilge and causing an explosion as well. Also I believe a better option then having it on deck and losing a far amount of space. The only thing I still don’t like about it is I think it kills the lines of the boat a little but I can live with it. Can’t say I’ve noticed any handling characteristics with it. It usually hovers around 1/2 full anyway and it’s only 60 gallons.same question? if so, neat way to increase deck space
That is a nice little boatI recently purchased a 25' BHM and I have to say I am very impressed with the seaworthiness of the boat so far. I only ran 3 trips before I was hauled for the season, our second trip the weather turned on us and she handled the sea great. When we left the inlet it was flat calm and it got real sporty in just a few hours. She is narrow, the beam is 9' at the widest point. I have never been on a 25' GM or TJ but I have never heard anything negative about the GM. Stacy builds a great boat!
My BHM has solid glass hull (I believe they are all solid), balsa core wash rails, pilothouse roof and trunk cabin. Like most GMs it also has an above deck 60 gallon tank under the transom.
