2010 X2 starboard ballast tank removal

Well it was a great holiday week until my bilge filled with water...

Looks like I have a pretty sizable leak in my starboard hard tank and was wondering if anyone has had any luck removing one with out splitting that hull and two if anyone knows if they are still available or easily repaired. Worst case scenario I'll plumb in a fat sac for the rest of the summer, but I kind of like having the hard tank.

Did you ever resolve this problem? I'm curious as to what you found and if you have a solution.

I started to mess with it an realized that it was going to take more time than I was willing to spend on it mid season. For now I have a fat sac plumbed in place of the hard tank. I plan lo look into it further this winter.

I have the same problem. Did you end up removing the hard tank and replacing it with a bag? Thinking about doing that also.

I ended up finding the crack and have attempted to weld it back together for now. In the garage it holds water, so weíll see what happens once itís on the lake.

Word is a replacement tank is about $500 but it takes 20 hrs worth of labor to have it replaced. With the tanks in the 2010s you have to have the hull separated to get the tanks out.

Reviving this thread

My 2010 X2 STB Tank has started to leak as well. I also have the fly high piggy back system plumed in, the likely culprit, but wanted to know if anyone decided to ditch the tanks and just run custom sacs in their place.

Better/worse?

Ditch the tanks and plumb in 1100 bags and be done with it.

I was able to find my leak and fix it. If it had been much worse I would likely have gone the bag route.
