Two reasons for the small tank: vertical clearance and ease of handling when it's refill time. Oh yeah, it's under $100 whereas a new horizontal tank is north of $300.
Consider fitting 2 smaller tanks, joined to a common supply head. When one is empty, switch to the other and take the empty ashore to refill/exchange.
