Default Replacement fuel tanks fuel starvation issues

This is probably going to sound like a stupid question-but anyway here goes. I replaced original fuel tank with a Spectra. With the original fuel tank I never had a fuel starvation issue under hard acceleration at high rpm's no matter what fuel level the tank was at. Now I do. All the rubber is new and even went to a RobbMc pump. The only way to avoid it now is to keep tank near full. Would it be possible to add a hose to the fuel pickup inside the tank so that it is drawing from the rear of tank? It is done this way on my inboard boat-rubber hose to bottom of tank . What do you all think? Thanks,Paul:
