What Kodiak Bait Tank?

I recently bought a new to me 2003 Montauk 170. The previous owner said that he had a Kodiak bait tank installed but didn't use it enough so he got rid of it. The boat still has the mounting pads installed so I was hoping to buy a replacement tank and install using the existing mounting hardware to avoid drilling additional holes in the deck. My problem is the previous owner did not know what size tank he had and I'm having trouble figuring it out. I tried contacting Kodiak via the contact info on their website and my email didn't go through and it sounds like they changed their phone number.

The mounting pads are laid out in a square with 15" sides and a 21.5" diagonal so I'm thinking it was a round tank, possibly the KA-24 model which is 20" in diameter. Does anyone have any ideas or mounting templates/guidance? Is Kodiak still in operation or did they sell to West Marine?

    The West Marine tanks are exactly the Kodiak bait tanks.

    Worst case scenario, you buy it and return it if needed.

    Your guess for the model sounds right imo.

    I'm trying to avoid going to West Marine because the closest one is 100 miles away but it sounds like a day trip is in order. That West Marine 22 could be the one.

    What size pump are you running on your PF22? Kodiak recommends a 500 on their site but I see a lot of people opting for the 800.
    I've run a 800gph on a PF14 before and it was a perfect. Some will say its too much but only maybe had 10 roll while I had it. 800 should be a good match for the 22

    I use a 800 on a 48 gallon Blue Water and still have to neck down the flow to get a 7 minute fill time. You can use a 800 if you want but you are going to need to reduce flow even more thanI do. A 500 will work fine for a 22
