Does anyone know the size of the three individual tanks on. DS43? From what I can work out it’s 150L for the Front, 60L for the side (under the starboard seat) and 210L for the one in the bilge. But that doesn’t equal 500L which it should. So either: 1. My meter isn’t calibrated, 2. A tank is leaking, 3. Plumbing is leaking
Hi Mike. I'm not on the boat but from memory the front and starboard tanks are both 150L and the central 250L making 550L in total. These will represent the maximum volume. We fitted transducers so that we could monitor the tank levels. Obviously if the bilges aren't dry then that will require further investigation.
I have a 2003 DS43 and the capacity of my three tanks are precisely as specified above by Markevans. Bow tank 150L, starboard tank 150L and Center tank at 250L. I always run only one tank at a time so that I then know exactly what I have left on the counter. I am still using the original counter that came with the boat. Each tank has to be reset to zero when it is filled and then it counts up as the water is drawn down from the tank. Very important to reset the counter when you change tanks and fill!
