I have recently acquired a 1995 Tiara 3100 open. When running, the boat draws gas for both engines only from the starboard gas tank (causing the boat to list to the port side). The owners manual indicates a crossover switch for the two tanks, yet I cannot find one in the engine compartment. In the engine compartment I see only separate gas lines going to each engine, repsectively.
Do you know how to get the engines to draw from tanks on each side? Is there a 'switch'?

It could be a common manifold being fed by each tank. Pull up the pye plates used to inspect the tanks. There may be valves on top of the tank, of which the port one may be closed. Open the port one with the starboard one open, now it will probably draw from both tanks. I have seen this arrangement. Not sure if it applies to the Tiara, but worth the check! If there is a switch, I would think it would be on the helm station. One other thought go to the Tiara site register an pose this question on the discussion board!
