Pacific 22. Advice please.

I've just bought a P22 ( Scary Des you can add me to your owners register )and I've 2 questions (for now).
First, what capacity is the fuel tank in it's original form and secondly, a more general question is about sign writing on the tubes. Do you need special hypalon letters and glue them on, presumably like a patch, or can you use self adhesive lettering as you would on a hard boat?

Thanks

Andy

If you have the normal Hypalon and not the MOD (furry type) material then so long as you throughly clean the area down first you can use self adhesive lettering. The chap who does mine uses a slightly thinner PVC material so it is more flexible and sticks well the the "roughness" of the hypalon.

Andy, standard tank is about 20 gallons or 90 litres. there is a huge space under the console and a little tank sat in the middle of it. 170 L will fit in there if you want.

Hi chaps,
thanks for your prompt advice. She has been re- tubed in what I presume is hypalon.
Pete, I've seen the thread regarding the console and fuel tank change that you did and very impressed to. I plan to do something very similar with mine as soon as I have time and perhaps I could look to you for a bit of advice when the time nears?

By the way, I didn't realise that I'd offered to run the owners club either!

Cheers

Andy

That is jolly decent of you to volunteer to run the owners club.

When is the first meet
