How much does your bow tank hold?

Recommended Posts

NorrisMike

I am ordering all the parts to do the bow ballast install. Everyone I've talked to claims the MLS bow tank holds 350+ lbs. When I called the local dealer to order the tank they told me that the tank was a 37 gallon tank. That means if it was absolutely filled all the way to the top it would be just over 300 lbs and in the real world you would probably be getting 2xx lbs in there. Are there different sized tanks? Does anyone have a different experience? Not sure if it would be worth the hassle if that's the case. Thoughts?

Oh yea - I would be installing it in a 2009 21' Vride. Not sure if the tanks are different sizes for different boats either...

In my 05 LSV it holds 250 lbs. No idea if there aree differeent size tanks or if this helps you in any way. Just my 2 cents

Thanks for the response!

The dealer mentioned that there was a 32 gallon tank, a 37 gallon tank...... and maybe a 39 gallon tank.... He did mention that they claim it has 350 lbs in the nose but after seeing the specs on the tanks he couldn't figure how they came up with that claim. I wonder if the numbers are a little puffed up.....?
