No I'm not stuttering, I'm replacing my old aluminium holding tank
that had a paper thin bottom. I, of course, couldn't find a replacement that was an exact match to the old one so I bought an appropriately sized rectangular poly tank. Now I'm faced with installing this tank in the same location as the old which was shaped to match the hull
shape. This means the rectangular tank need to have a platform built to raise the inside edge. It is located aft of the head
bulkhead in the cockpit
locker and spans the width of the locker. This means raising it to at least eight inches above the present location so that I still have a three degree slope on the tank to send contents towards the dip tube outlet.
Any ideas on how to raise and secure this tank.
I've been reading posts to this forum and would like to hear from so many people who have done some amazing work
on their boats. Sailboats have to be the ultimate DIY project
. So many thing affect its performance in the most hostile environments that it seems every detail of its construction has to be thought out.
Thanks in advance for your help.
