    So... I’m being lazy and just don’t have the time nor patience to install my tank. Anyone interested in doing the install? All I have is the tank. Would still need all hoses, thru-hull and other necessary accessories. If anyone knows of someone that would be able/willing to do this (and do it well... experience preferred) please let me know. Would love to have this completed in the next week or two.

    can you share your list of materials?

    Just ordered a PE60D and a jabsco last week. I will be installing this myself as well same boat. I know the gas tank position changes with model year.

    If you ordered the jabsco cyclone you will not need a filter before the pump. I have ran mine for a long long time on the same one, no filter, it chews through anything. I’d be more worried about a filter getting clogged than my pump getting damaged by kelp. Also with this pump your tank will be a little to small so you will need to throttle it back via a valve after, very specific that it is after, the pump.

    Probably 10’ but get more you can always shorten,of hose of each 1” and 1.5” marine grab hose from west marine.

    I mounted mine on the port side of the back compartment. This required 4 screws and some 4200 you will also need a good amount of 4200 to caulk the tank to the deck.

    If you don’t already have through hulls you’ll need a 1” high speed pick up for the intake, and a 1.5” normal one for the back, of course you’ll need nice sea cocks for these to be able to shut them off in emergency’s. Be aware of any transducers already mounted, never mount a pick up in front of a transducer. It will mess with your feed. 5200 for this application.

    This position also required some 90’s and adapters because a jabsco uses 3/4” not 1” fittings.

    A nice hand full of marine grab hose clamps from west marine for each hose, and use 2 on each location.

    All the electronic stuff if you don’t already have it wired and breakered.


    That’s most of it but I’m sure I left something out

    Here are a few pics of my last tank install on a parker that may help someone. Be sure to use bronze thru hull, seacocks and ball valves.

    I have seen mixed answers on the putting 4200 down around the tank. Some say don’t do it so if you have a leak u can see the water hit the deck.

    For your pie plate, did u leave the cap off? Or cut holes to run the hoses through the plate cap?

    I used almond color silicon from home depot to seal the tank to the deck, never had any issues. I used a trim ring around the deck opening to keep the hoses from rubbing on deck.

    You caulk all around the tank BUT leave 1/2 gap with no caulking in the rear of the tank.

    Did you get this installed? I just had one installed on my 2320 two weeks ago and I can refer the guy.

    Clean looking install. Looking to do the same next week on our 2510 Walkaround. No previous tank. Trying to decide between, dual tanks, and 65 to 90-gallon sizes.

    We were considering using the pickup from the wash down pump, removing the 3/4" thru hull and going bigger, then T off to the bait and wash down pumps. Fewer holes, thoughts?

    first thing is you have to decide if you want it in the center of the deck or more toward the pilot house. My tanks was set with 1/4" clear from the door swing.

    Centered is my first thought, possibly a little forward of that.
    We don't have a cabin door, it's a walk around, not pilot house.
