Smile Retrofitting Waste Holding Tank

My 1974 Peason 10m needs a holding tank, badly, just moved to an inland lake. Questions. (I) West marine and my local shop seem to say " just put the pump out fitting on the bottom". That just cannot be a good idea. But if on top, then I think it has to have a pickup tube, but I don't see anything about pickup tubes in the holding tank sections in West Marine from Todd, etc. Am I missing something? (ii) West marine said I needed a macerating toilet. since I don't have pressure water, this is getting really expensive. But do you need a macerator to keep the solids from getting stuck (biological solids). or will my WC Headmate head do the job. (iii) how important is the filter on the vent hose and (iv) has anyone used one of those oxygen pump bubblers to keep odors out (Sweettank is the name i think). Thanks to all
