Default Fuel tank capacity???

I just bought a 95 Javelin 400TE 19+' bass boat, it has a 200 Vindicator engine. Can anyone tell me the fuel capacity of this tank? The ones I asked locally say its printed on the tank, but there is a partition between the tank and the battery compartment so I cant see it.

Thanks in advance.
Danny

Thanks for the reply. I cant see the tank at all, one person said its probably a 48 gallon. Does that sound right?

The conversion works out to approximately be 231 cubic inches equals 1 U.S. liquid gallon.

Hope that helps.

Yeah, could be right.

Many of the BB have pretty big tanks for tournaments.

If you could find an old sales brochure, they probably list the tank size in the specs. And if there are any optional sizes they would most likely be listed as well.

I found this for sale listing and the details list the tank size at 48.

I guess you could always estimate the size when you fill it up as well.

Thanks Chris. I know I must sound like an idiot, but I know absolutely nothing about the Javelin line. Is the Javelin still produced, maybe under another name?
Thanks again for the information.

Well basically the story as I remember it, was that Javelin was bought by Stratos around the turn of the milenium. And for a few years, Stratos built both the Stratos line and Javelin which was basially sold as a line within the Stratos family. Then a point came in time where the Javelin name was eliminated and they went with Stratos.

Stratos itself is owned by Genmar holdings which is a company that owns a bunch of boat brands that you would be familiar with.

Here's a link to their site which lists their brands.
