Call Mark and I'm sure he'll give you a ball park, I seem to remember everything was around 2.5k but I can't be sure. Call bluewater also, a lot of people prefer them. You could get away with a 35 but everyone on here will tell you to go with a 45 gallon. Good luck!

With bait tanks always go with larger than you think you need, I would go with the 45/48 blue water, PE makes a nice tank, I have one on my boat, However I prefer the BW, I am sure either would be happy to quote you the cost of tank and install.
Good luck and tight lines.

I've got a 65gal Blue Water tank with starboard top and rod holders. Tank alone was ~$2000 then another ~$1000 for install.

$1000 for install is about right depending on your setup. Don't be shocked.... cyclone pump $350, brass valves and thru hull another $200 or more. If you didn't already have a pickup with a seacock add another $300. Then add the price of your tubing (double for a split tank). It all adds up rather quickly and that wasn't even counting labor.

Did randy do the install?
No, I had a guy that he recommended here in San Diego do the install. It was tricky because we have a 200gal fuel tank that takes up most of the under deck area and there's minimal room for the hoses so we opted for a professional rather than us two monkeys banging around with a hammer and drill.

I just had a 75 gallon Blue water installed on my 2019 Parker 2820xld. you have about 800 just in the parts, and like Capt Lou said it was a tight fit with the gas tank so I spent another 1000 for a professional install here on the east coast, not to mention the tank and shipping from San Diego. but what the hell, we all know the best bait wins in the end.

I don't think Mark does any installs, I could be wrong. However I have Sergio at Expert Marine install mine. He did a fantastic job.

Good looking job, however I would put a 90 degree elbow between the seacock and the pump to minimize the chances of the pump picking air bubbles.
So basically laying the pump horizontal? That was the existing setup and the pump was just added to the connection. Haven't had any issues but I'll keep that in mind if the problem arises. Thx

Yes its not ideal to install directly onto the the seacock. For one its not attached to anything so there is stress only on the threads of the pump. Also when possible it os best to double clamp all of your hoses. Another thing is that I don't see a strainer so its inevitable that you will suck eel grass directly into your pump, thus fucking it up.
BTW I have a 65g on my 2310 and Mark sold me an 800GPH pump as opposed to the 1100 that a lot of guys use. Its worked great for four seasons.PE tanks are awesome and Mark is the man...

Pretty easy to do on your own. I attached my pump to the seacock and installed another valve down stream of the pump. Basically I can secure both valves and replace my pump if needed out at sea. My 2016 came prewired with
deutsch connectors. You will need a crimping tool for that.

the deck is about 7/8 inch thick. I epoxy coated the wood then sealed it with 5200 and added another pie hole opening if I choose to remove the tank in the future I can just install the lid. Also, push the tank far forward for weight biased purposes.

When it’s all said and done getting all the parts was the biggest pita. I asked a LOT of questions before I drilled any holes. My exit is above the water line, out the stbd side.

Installed an 80 gallon used offshore brand bait tank on my Parker 2520 with all new lines, mounts, 1600 gph pump with new hoses for less than 1K. Did the work myself.
