M 34 Waste Tank

I am replacing a collapsable waste tank that was located forward of my water tank in the v berth. Where is the best place to locate a new plastic tank? On the portside just forward the head, under the v berth? If anyone can remember the particulars of this project, I am open for suggestions.

Thanks

Chris Boudart

Sorry I can't provide any wisdom here as I am in the same position with my Morgan 30. There is no space forward of the water tank in my case, but both the port and starboard under-v-berth spaces look possible. I was originally hoping to locate the tank somewhere on the centreline, but that ain't a goer. I guess it would be possible (but more complicated) to install a tank on each side and interconnect them....

Have you decided what make of tank you are going to use?

Jeff - I have done some low-key research (ie messed about on Google) and so far come up with various possible pipework configurations and some suitable products. I am looking at "Vetus" tanks which come in a suitable size. They are not eye-wateringly expensive, but seem to have the right specs - see Vetus Flexible Waste Holding Tanks at AhoyCaptain.com - Always your best source. .


The main problem with flexible tanks seems to be the danger of wear caused by rubbing against surfaces, projections etc and my next task is to look a a suitable material to put in the under locker spaces which will protect against this.
