Re: Holding tank on P26

PNW, first step would be to build a flat platform for the tank to sit on, then fit blocking to hold it in place. Keep in mind 1 gallon is about 8 pounds, so a full 10 gallon tank is 80 pounds. Think about the forces as the boat pitches up and down in some sea. Trying to hold an unsupported tank with just a strap is not a good idea.
