Flexible holding tank location
Im turning over a Hunter Legend 355. Its original aluminum holding tank (problematic in this boat Im told) was removed and the head was plumbed directly overboard.
If I install a holding tank in its original location, the head will have a run of about 7ft, up hill about 18". Seems to me this is a ridiculous way to do this, as the entire line would need to be flushed every time, with only the joker valve holding back whatever is left in the hose.
So the thought is to install a flexible holding tank in a cavity under the aft berth, but below the head. Everything runs downhill. Understand they are not as rigorous as plastic or fiberglass, but it can be removed, washed out or replaced quite easily..
Am I thinking straight here? Tank size is 14.5 gal, a little small, but this is a flipper, so as long as Im legal, it shouldn't be a problem selling.
