Holding tank jeanneau 51

Well, I finally bought my boat! A Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 51, 1991. It is a fixer, but soild otherwise. My question to anyone who can help is "my boat is from the Caribbean and has NO holding tanks, so does anyone have experience fitting some in"? I am going to keep her in California and live on her. I need one( or more than one) holding tank, sizeable enough so I don''t have to constantly "pump out" at the pumping dock etc. California has very strict No Discharge rules in harbors and anchorages( as they should). I do know that some 51''s used a small sigle holding tank below each head that held a minimal amount of waste, just enough for a typical weekly charter. While most waste is discharged directly into the sea! That is not very practical for me.

Anyone with info on this particular application would be appreciated.

Chris
