1998 FD 248 OB fuel tank capacity

I recently purchased this boat and the seller thought the fuel tank was about 75 gallons.  Does anyone know for sure what it is?   Thanks!

    I had a 99 FD 248 IO and happen to have a 2000 brochure.  It says the fuel capacity for both the OB and IO 248 models are 66 gallons.

    As an fyi, boat wet weight is 4,207 lbs,  Max HP is 300, and draft is 14."

    Thanks bshippjr.  Wow, 4200 + pounds!  It sure does ride nice and I get 40 + mph with a 200 hp motor.

    That boat is very stable and we enjoyed ours.  In my case I wanted to go to an outboard and my wife wanted a windshield, and we found a used SD 217 in the area.

    As for the wet weight of the boat, the weight adds up considering that the 66 gal of gas (6lb/gal) and the 17 gal of water (8.3lb/gal) weigh over 500 lbs.
