1987 CAL 28-2 Holding Tank

I'm looking for a replacement holding tank for my 1987 CAL 28-2. I've searched all of the online catalogs that I could find and nothing even comes close to the OEM tank.

Does anyone know who made the original tanks in these CALs?

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

Do you have measurements for it?

If you have the measurements you will likely find one at West Marine that will fit in the space allocated. Take a look at TODD ENTERPRISES Tank-w/h at West Marine

Cal seems to have put "bladder" tank in their boats of that era. There was one in my previous 1982 Cal 9.2 and there's one in my current 1985 Cal 33-2. What do you have?

I had a bladder tank in my 1978 Catalina 27--it was horrible! After a while the rubber became porous enough to allow a foul oder to fill the cabin. Upon removal, plus a lot of scrubbing with bleach, boat soap and finally disinfectant, the odor was completely obliterated. I replaced all the tubes, tank and fittings--problem solved. The tanks from West Marine are relatively inexpensive, but I found the best deal on the tubes and fittings at Lowes. They were less than half the price there, and they had fantastic prices on stainless-steel clams as well.

All - Thanks for the posts. I'll try to answer them all here.

I'm fairly certain the tank is OEM as the manual shows it. It's a plastic tank that can no longer contain the odor! It's not terrible but the boat sure smells better when the tank isn't in there....it's in the backyard for the winter.

The tank is a real odd ball shape as it fits under the aft quarter berth up against the curved hull. Imagine a box that is roughly 36" long, 18" wide and each corner is a different length, 9", 7", 4.5" and 3". I haven't found anything close to this.

Yea, I think this is one of the few things that West Marine has reasonable prices on. I just bought one from them for a replacement.
