Hi all. Due to a leak in my 25 year old water
tank in my O'Day 302, I pulled the tank and plan on replacing it with one or two flexible water tanks
, but I have some questions on the best one(s) for the job.
Attached is a pic of my empty space. In the pic, the length from the fwd bulkhead to about an inch from the valves is 63".
The width starts in the aft at 27" and tapers up to either 13" or 15" (can't remember - doh!) at the forward most section.
Ideally I'd like to pack as much water in there as possible. My old tank was a 30gal and I'm almost positive I can get a lot more than that.
If I get a flexible tank that's 27.3" wide and it goes forward to the section that may be 15", what happens? Will it put too much pressure on the hull
or other wall? Will it push up the wood under the settee?
I can't find any tanks
that are 15" wide, so I'm struggling. Basically, if I buy one that is longer or wider than the space, is it going to cause problems?
Thanks in advance!
What would YOU do?
