spoke to stompa grex yeah i like that but i want my tank on the floor so i can stick a cutting board over the top of the tank without it looking really high and shit

would u guys go for the bastic tank with 1 pump or the one with 2 pumps?
http://www.boatgear.com.au/55_litre/...00gph_pump.htm

http://www.boatgear.com.au/55_litre/...00gph_pump.htm

so many different combos to buy i donno which one would be best suited for yakkas,squid and the odd slimy would also like to keep other fish that we are keeping alive in the tank saves buying ice and carrying a esky

Gazza Below is a photo with the bait board fitted.

Three points to keep in mind.
1. Depending on the position of the bait board it needs to be high enough so you can open & fold back the lid of the LBT under the board.

2. Having the bait board at a comfortable height so you can reach over the LBT & preferably not need to bend over.

3. Having the tank on the floor , consider how you are going to drain the tank at the end of the day

As for the pumps , it tends to come down to preference & cost but a few comments ,
I suspect the hose they are supplying is quite rigid , OK if you have no tight bends. The flexable spiral hose from Bias is a lot easier to use.

I see the price of just the tank is $112 compared to around $300 for the kit.

Personally , I would be buying the components as required so that it fits into your situation rather than buy the kit & assume it will fit & use all the components.
I think you will find , buying as required will also be less expensive.

As for the pump 550 gph may sound good. The tank in the photo had a 500gph pump & to prevent overflow the height of the outlet & hose size is very important.

im happy to pay for the kit a lot less ****ing around thats why i was looking at kits
i just went to measure the boat looks like the 55/85L tanks will be hard to plumb but the small 35L tank will fit on the little shelf between the seats i will just need to ask stompa to make up some sturdy L brackets to mount the tank
going to buy the tank if anyone else has input let me know before i purchase it

If you cut the section out between the seats make sure you support the inside corner of your seats otherwise they will break.

If you are mounting it on the flat part I would also put legs under it to support the extra weight. 1 Gallon is 10lbs.

I cut mine right out so now can work fish around the motor with ease.

Otherwise it was about a 4 or 5ft reach.
Plus more fishing room.

Gazza. If your reffering to the tank in the photo , I'm not sure , it's one I installed in a friends boat but as a guess at least 55lt , perhaps a bit bigger.

I think utilising the shelf is the better option . Uses less floor space & easier access around the back of the boat for fishing.

yeah your right geoff i'll need to wait untill next week when stompa can fit me in to see what he says i hope a stand isnt going to cost a lot of pennies i wasnt expecting to spend a lot on installing a LBT

i also thought of using the square aluminum tubing from bunnings with the plastic connections to make a small stand this stuff http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/25-4-x-25...item4170b56097

The material in the link is an option provided the corner clips can with stand the constant movement of the boat & the water sloshing in the tank.

Have you determined how your going to drain the tank??

To drain completly the fitting needs to go in the bottom of the tank .

If I recall correctly , the fitting that comes with the kit has a 90 degree bend & unless the tank is raised you will need to drill a hole in the fiberglass.

The problem may be the elbow not being long enough to go through the tank & the F/G.

There are solutions depending on your comments.

geoff i think it comes with a standard plastic drain plug like those on small boats i would have to go check to make sure and i was just going to drain the tank to inside the boat and let it run out the hull drain plugs or drain it into a bucket

dropped the boat off to stompa yesterday and picked it up today very quick turn around 24 hours to do the job and its done cleanly i would have made a mess of it lol
the tank is positioned well and is rock solid stompa assures me the back of the boat will fall off before the tanks mounts give way

Looks good
But I think you might have overflow issues
You need to have the drain hole lower then that of the input
The tank would of come with instructions on where the outlets should be placed
Can be easily fixed by just putting a valve on your input so you can adjust the water flow coming in
