Re: ps 31 water tank leak

Still working on the water tanks....I am waiting on a quote from Thumper at PS for the prefab plastic tank lids and have looked into starboard-this item is not loved by the guy helping me with some of the work; his complaint has to do with its apparent inabilty to accept caulk without being screwed down...his issue, not mine since I have no idea.

I searched the threads and haven't seen that anyone has just pulled the old wooden lids and installed prefab plastic tanks into the cavities and then put plywood over top without sealing it. I realize that I would lose some capacity if I couldn't get a perfect fit and would have to secure the tank, but does anyone have any thoughts or have tried/seen this approach?

Thanks for the help!
