RE: 1982 Californian 34 LRC Fuel tanks: HOW BIG??

There was an option for an extra pair of 50 gallon fuel tanks at a cost of $380 (!!) in 1982.

All literature I've come across and my own boat tells me the original main tanks were always 125 gallons each. If you have less than half tanks and the capability to transfer fuel from one tank to another, you might try to transfer all your fuel to one tank, then refuel the tank to determine the capacity.

Hopefully you'll have a couple days of running up the river before hitting that fuel-challenged stretch. This would give you the opportunity to closely track your speed/fuel burn/distance traveled.

If possible, keep us posted on your trip as you progress upriver. Have a great trip and keep a sharp eye out for flotsam!!
