      Hi All,

      My fresh water and sewage systems are the main two things I've been working on. I bought a flojet pressure water pump and have put new 3/4" ID plumbing to the head and galley sinks. So that's all set. However, before I proceeded I wanted to see what I had in store for the sewage system, in case my work there would be impacted.

      It turns out there is much less room convenient room under the V-berth than I though, and will not be able to fit a plastic tank in there. There was no holding tank previously.

      Upon further examining the current setup, it appears the fresh water storage tank was actually just a storage bin for the v-berth and the PO siliconed a plywood lid on top with a filler cap. The original tank, aft of the storage compartment, is supported by a fiberglass enclosure, and so is impossible to get at for cleaning.

      I've decided I want to gut everything that's there and start over with two new tanks from Ronco plastics. They have many, many shapes and sizes to choose from.

      I'm wondering if anyone has measurements of the interior dimensions of the hull in the V-berth, or knows where I can find them. My boat is 4 hours away, and using trial and error with cardboard mockups could set me back a very long time.

      I definitely want to maximize the space usage down there.

      Thanks!

      Best,
      Jake

        I am currently using a pair of 28 gal flex tanks from Vetus. They conform well and slosh less, than solid tanks when under the V-berth area. I had abandoned the original SS tanks under the mid section sole. Not a chance I'd rip out the floor planks and replace them.

        Only word of caution when using flex bladders is that they rest on a area free of anything that might tear, wear or chafe, on them. I made up a soft rug cradle under each.

        They come in different capacity.

          website at www.capitalyachts.info. You'll find him under photos of his
          Newport 28, Majaca. He's already been there and done that. His site is very
          explanatory. Try http://home.roadrunner.com/~dougbauer/plumbing.html for

            Thanks guys,

            Doug's site is exactly the inspiration I need - looks like he did something similar to what I'm looking to do.

            I am aware of the capital yachts website. However, they do not have the original Newport 28, only the mkII. I can't seem to find the owner's manual for the original anywhere.
