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

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?

Leith (rhymes with teeth) is the port of the City of Edinburgh in Scotland. A Leither is someone who comes from that area.

I must go down to the sea again, to the lonely sea and the sky - I left my shoes and socks there, I wonder if they're dry?

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.
