Thank you for the reply, Sawing. Mine currently has a vented loop between the toilet and the holding bladder; probably left over from the original pre-1977 ban on overboard direct discharge. I do have a pumpout fitting ondeck already plumbed to the bladder, and it's pretty much behind the toilet itself up on deck. I'd like to keep that.

How and where exactly in the v-berth did you mount your tank? Did you build a level platform into the hull? I've got the intake through-hull, my depth sound transducer, and knot meter sender all under the v berth, aft of the fresh water tank. How did you deal with all of that stuff and put a tank in? Do you, by any miracle, have a pic?

Thanks again for the reply.
