    3888 Water Tank-gctid828467

    Hi All, I noticed that some of the 3888 Series M/Y are reported to have plastic water tanks. I searched the Bayliner parts archive and the part number does not change from 1989 to 1993, the last year produced.

    Does anyone know if they actually installed plastic tanks on the later models?

    Curious minds....

    Cheers, Gary

    To the best of my knowledge the plastic tanks are either auxiliary tanks, like under the master bunk or the aluminum tanks have been replaced. An ugly job I'm not looking forward to.

      Yes... My 1993 has plastic black and fresh water tanks..... My recollection is when I was looking @ 38's that 1991 and up 3888 had the plastic factory installed... maybe it was 89... and the 4 cyl hino was a 91 up deal...

        I have an 89 and it definately has an aluminum water tank. I hope it never leaks!

          They came aluminium tanks and having recently replaced my aluminium tank with new plastic food grade tanks I can say that the old tanks are difficult to remove,

            Get a cell phone and go into the small hatch in the port stateroom and take several photo's on the bottom center, then take photo's of the top, my top has more holes than the bottom.

            Use a hose and try and rinse all the salt air crusts on the top and bottom and sides.
