Do you have the plumbing for dual tanks? That would include the tank selector valves. If not, that hull may not have had dual tanks originally.
The tanks originally had a label on the tank that listed the capacity in addition to other data. Try cleaning around the sender area and the fill area for any labels.

The original brochure probably would list the tank capacity. Search the web for Grady White Archived Brochures.

The tanks by 'law' have to have a label with the certification info but it could have worn away long ago.

GW Customer Service can help with tank drawings. They sent me drawings for my 25 year old Islander. Brochure is a good idea too so you can see what was available.

Yea, go to the GW website and download the brochure. They have an archived section with older model years stored that can be downloaded.
