    Actually $800 sounds reasonable for a new tank.

    I agree. $800 does not sound bad. The larger custom Wakemakers bags are now pricey.

    If you have the floor out, I would suggest adding sound deadening material on the underside before you put everything back together.

    Does the 2018 SE overflow the center tank to the bow ballast?
    Is there bow ballast?

    Jist thinking for all the work, could the OP prep for an upgrade while it is apart.

    Does sound damping material under the gas tank make that much difference?

    Yes, the hard ballast tank overflows to bag in top. What upgrade did you have in mind?

    If you didn't have bow weight, this would have been a great time to add. All good though.

    The sound deadener goes on the underside of the floor panel. Help with v-drive noise echoing under the floor.

    Ah ok ok. Have you been on a boat that did that? Did it make that much of a difference with tranny noise?

    Yes, it did make a difference on my boat. Go to the post in the link below. There is a lot of discussion about what many of us have done for sound issues.

    When I work on my SL next spring, I will be putting some sound deadening materials in the floor around the trans area.

    @larry_arizona had a post about the aftermarket materials he installed.

    I just saw this, these are the acoustic foam panels I used on the engine and trans hatch and under the main floor panel.

    They stick decent, had to use some spray adhesive on heavily contoured areas.

    They kill sound significantly!!!

    Unfortunately it looks like they are currently unavailable on Amazon
