    Have you considered Plastimo flexible tanks?

    I did look at them Chuck but I couldn’t find one that fitted the space well and I was also a little concerned about cleaning them. I’m going to put two 6″ access plates on top of the Vetus tanks and, thanks to a tip from my brother I’ll use ones with transparent lids so I can visually check the water levels just by lifting the locker lids,

    Is it really neccesary to have pumped salt water with an inlet? Fewer holes/seacocks the better, in my humble op.

    Hi Jon. There will only be one hole below the waterline in the entire boat and it’s the one for the saltwater pump. With a limited amount of freshwater aboard it’s surprising how much can be saved by using saltwater for things like rinsing and cooking spuds!
    Seriously though the back of this through hull fitting will be immediately visible and accessible with a plastic bung tied right next to it.
