My holding tank is a respectable 16 gallon capcity and doesn't leak.

Kracor holding tanks are still available: check out their marine catalog-
Hope this helps,
Yes, Kracor is still making tanks, but not the model that is in my boat. I was trying to avoid having to build a new support system which a different tank size/shape would require. I've decided to wait to tackle this project until the boat is hauled in a few weeks. I've been spending the time sailing rather than working (very happily, I might add!).
