Default 31 Jupiter fuel tanks

Anyone have tanks replaced on 31 Jupiter in Tampa/St Pete? Both my saddle tanks need to be replaced. Spoke with Jupiter and they indicated the console does not need to be removed. Appreciate insights from anyone who has gone through this. Thanks

My friend did his. The cut the deck and pull them out from there. Tanks run from behind the console aft and out side the live well and storage area under the rocket launcher. Be sure to get a really good structural glass guy. You don't want to see the deck cuts after the job is done. .What year is your Jupiter.

2006. Thought I would have gotten a little more mileage out of them.

Tim at blue water fiberglass in port richey replaced mine in the Contender. I would highly recommend him. Very easy to deal with, sent me a lot of photo updates and does very high quality fiberglass structural and finish work.

Not sure. Pressure tested multiple times and check everything all fittings, senders etc. Leaks with tanks half full when trailering. Tanks don’t leak without movement so the leaks must be top/higher in the tanks.

Gent's, I have said this hundreds of time "the average age for an aluminum fuel tank is 12 years". Some are more lucky than others....
