Re: Orientation of Flexible Holding Tank

Omatako:

Thank you for your detailed reply. A flexible tank would not be my first choice, but since a new tank and all associated materials came with the boat, I thought I am really out nothing if it doesn't work in the long run. Worst case, I will have to eventually replace the tank with a rigid one that will fit in the same compartment.

The tank will go in a bow compartment which will be padded and supportive so it cannot move around. I intend to install a proper vent through the starboard side of the hull, just below the deck. I can blow back through it periodically to ensure that it remains clear.

Kermit
