Adding Blackwater Tank

Has anyone added a blackwater holding tank to the Bahia 46?
Is the factory installed tank in glassed in to the closet or is it a plastic / metal?

Where exactly did they install the pump-out and air vent?

Any details would be great..

Hope everyone is well,

Re: Adding Blackwater Tank

Our one is located under the cockpit floor. Stainless steel.
No pump needed as it is a gravity drop. Just like an outside funny at home.
The shut off thingie is located in the port side aft cabin in the removable bottom of the locker that is beside the hull - the inside part of the hull, not the outside part if yo know what I mean

Re: Adding Blackwater Tank

We have just fitted a plastic custom built one for the aft port loo, gravity drop. Situated in the space between the two port heads above our freezer and below our washing machine. A simple setup using the original outlet in the hull as the shut off valve. We put a carbon filtered vent out through the side of the hull just below the rubbing strip.
