Islander 28 waste tank

Hey all,

I have a 1976 Islander 28. My waste tank is a bladder. It is installed under the starboard side of the v-berth at the same angle as the hull. It does not sit flat. Arnt bladders supposed to sit flat. what I am wondering is if this is the way they did it from the factory?

When it comes time to pump out it is a two man job. one guy to run the pump and one guy to push the down on the bladder to get it to suck anything out. Either I dont know what im doing, which is possible, or this just isnt right.

I am looking for a tank to fit in this spot. Does anyone know of one that does?
Or is there a better set up for this boat?

thanks
