Currently, my oil reservoir is in a transom box next to the battery.  I'd like to add a 2nd battery but that means the reservoir needs a new home and I have lots of room under the bow.  Does anyone see any issues with placing the reservoir in the bow?  This means I'd be running about 20' of oil line to the motor.

Maximum length is 25 ft, must be one piece between primer bulb and engine.  Which just means they don't want you extending those hose, they want you to cut off the hose and use one continuous piece.

Putting the placing the reservoir on the bow side of my bulkhead would have put me right at 25' of oil line.  Instead, I purchased a larger battery box (needed 7 4/5 inches of width) and placed the reservoir in the box.  This is now secured behind my starboard bench seat and gunnell wall with 17' of oil line running through my gunnell wall to the filter.

I primed and bled the system best I could.  No evidence of air that I could find.  No issues after an hour of run time.
