I can tell you that on my T-30 ('77), replacing the water lines is relatively doable, and I've done it. What is more difficult is replacing the tank. There are two versions of the T-30, one with the galley midship and the other has the galley aft on the starboard side. My T-30 is the aft galley model with the water tank under the starboard settee, just ahead of the the galley. I dont know where the water tank is for the mid galley version. The water tank was installed in the hull prior to the inner interior liner being installed, so removing the tank would require a lot of cutting to get it out. These tanks have plastic fittings that can freeze and leak if not properly winterized. Replacing the forward fitting on my tank fixed the leak. The tank on my T-30 is poly, not metal.

I'm no Tartan expert, but I have learned a lot about my T-30. Shoot me a note if I can help.
