I used the same tank under my V-berth. It worked out well. I see
in your drawing that you have (what appears to be) seperate fill
and discharge ports at the aft end of your tank. I went with a
single port at the bottom of the aft end, and that has worked well.
You don't show any ports on the top of the tank, and i'd advise
you to stick to that. I tried to have a vent port on top, and there
wasn't nearly enough clearance. I later put my vent port on the
forward end of the tank and ran the hose up to a fitting at the
How do you intend to secure the tank to the hull? I glassed in a
couple of 2x4s as skids and lashed the tank to those with line. It
turned out so-so.
As you will have a long run from the head/pumps up to the tank, I
would reccomend using a straight shot of PVC pipe with flexible
hose between the pipe and any terminations. I did this and was
very happy with it. West Marine now stocks the PVC-hose
adapters necessary to make this work.
