I used to run tanks plus 750's now I just run 1100s and it's a lot more weight and more storage room

Thanks Dustin. Not sure my A22 has as much room as your A24 and can handle 1100. I may go with the new sumo 850

Well, I did it. i removed the tanks last night and wondered why I waited so long. It literally only took a couple of hours. No issues at all and it was easy especially with Walters tip on the 2x4. The tanks are now in the garbage. Nothing wrong with them, just didn't want to store them in my house because Im pretty sure they will never make their way back into the boat

Im not sure if Im getting my bags totally full though. This maybe due to a false exceptions on how hard the bags should feel. My vent line is right there so I may try to use the anti siphon adapter to see if that allows me to fill the bags more before they start to overflow.

The space gained is great! I will probably get some Lead Wake bags to throw on the floor to compensate for potential weight lost from removing the tanks. These however should not eliminate the space gained.

I have the stock Piranha 800 with 3/4 hose. Fill time is about 12min. Im considering upgrading the fill pumps only to the 1100 to see if that helps. First I need to look and see how hard it would be to replace the 3/4 hose with 1 1/8.

At any rate, thank you to all on here that did this first!

It's not that hard to upgrade the fill hose and pump. The pumps are next the V-Drive. To get easy access to everything, just remove the carpeted panel in the compartment. There's 2 black screws on top and one screw on the bottom, then you get easy access to route all hoses.

If you have any foam padding like they use in home gyms it wouldn’t hurt to put some down at this time

Dustinjean! Did you ever take pics of your 1100s full? I am just about to pull the trigger on replacing my rear pnp 750 bags as both of them have ports that leak and its just a matter of time before a full blowout happens. I am going to do the tank yank at the same time. Wondering if i can fit an 1100 and still get my mission boat surfgates to fit under the hatches like i do now. Im also wondering if im going to be able to get up on plane with the 1100s haha.. does anyone have a 2013 ls3 motor??? Or a source on getting a engine swap?

How are everyone's holding up? I'm debating between the sumo max 1000 (50x22x22) that replaced the 900 many have used and the Wakemakers 45"Lx20"wx25"h (910 lbs). Currently have the hard tanks with sumo max 650s on them.

This being for a 13' A22.

I tried getting a hold of someone on here who went with 1100s instead of the 900s.. i want to see how much room a guy still has once they are full.. i have the same as you(2013 a22) if you pull the trigger can you take pics of your bags full in there? I am limping my leaking 750s on top of the hard tanks thru this summer then will tackle pulling tanks this winter i think.
