Most small aluminum bass boats average about 15 gallons for a livewell.

You could also use a cooler with a pump amd aerator sysytem.

Just a note. Remember water weighs 8 lbs per gallon, and when you add the weight of the tank and pump, you could be adding alot of weight for a 14 ft boat. If your fishing alone in it for tournaments you may not need it to be too big. Good luck with your project.
