Additional Fuel Supply - Fuel Bladders?

I am contemplating a trip from Florida to Abaco to help some friends once they give me the "go ahead" to come over. However, I will need to add fuel capacity to my boat (Leopard 40 catamaran - 45 gallons per engine, 90 gallons total) to make a round trip on the assumption that diesel may not be available or in short supply. I already have 20 gallons worth of additional capacity in jerry cans, but think that I really need roughly 100 gallons. The options appear to be either acquire and secure a couple of 55 gallon drums to the stern or acquire a 100 gallon fuel bladder. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated as I do not want to become any part of the problem in Abaco in my efforts to help out.
