    Holding tank fitting sealant

    I did a leak test on a new holding tank today. The sender and inlet were fine. The inspection plate had a drip after a few hours, but the vent and outlet did not seal. Both are 90s, so they need to be a specific orientation. Ronco says the fittings should dry seal and I've read if they don't...

    Tanks on 36C

    Now that the weather has warmed up, we've finally begun to clean out the 36C we purchased last fall. Unfortunately the previous owner used the boat as a giant garbage can, and we were unable to see everything up until now. After filling a dumpster, we started opening cabinets, and storage...

    E35-II holding tank

    So I have looked around and have not really found an updated source for black water Holding tanks for the E35-II. It currently has no holding tank and seems it was removed by the previous owner. It looks like it was located in the bilge under the settee nearest to the head. I have searched...

    1971 E27 purchase questions

    New to the site, very close to purchasing a 1971 E27 but have just a few questions for now. There was about a quart or so of water in the bilge, there's no automatic bilge pump (though the manual one does work). Is this troubling? The owner seems to think it's always there and that it rarely...

    installing new head holding tank on Ericson 32-2 1970

    Time to bite the bullet and install a holding tank on our sail boat for the SF bay area (Jack London Square). Our basic plan to buy something from Ronco that will fit in the "hanging area" behind the head. I think I have a basic idea of how to select the tank, but I'm not sure how to deal with...

    Recommendations for a replacement head/holding tank seacocks

    I am pulling my 1972 e32 for survey and bottom paint. The seacock valves for the in and out of the head and holding tank look original, the old screw down valve and are pretty corroded. I thought i might as well replace them while I'm out. Can anyone recommend a good brand that isn't overpriced...

    where's your holding tank vent?

    Vikings, Where are your holding tank vents? I'm trying to figure out where to install mine. I'm thinking of putting the through-hull (or hulls) just beneath the sheer stripe, but I'm a little concerned about water intrusion. I've found two links that show two different approaches. Thanks for...

    which manual pump for holding tank?

    I am putting in a new head. I plan to route the outlet hose from the toilet to the holding tank. From there I plan to route one outlet hose to a deckplate for dockside pumpout, and another outlet hose to a through-hull for manual pumpout while underway. Whale sells two different "Mark V"...

    New E-27 Owner!

    I am so excited! I am the proud new owner of a 1973, Ericson 27, model #384. I am so excited to be a new boat owner. I can't wait for the wind in my face, long sunny days in new ports, and looking back and seeing a wake as far as the eye can see. But for the moment I get to enjoy the other...

    Plumbing question: head to holding tank

    I'm getting ready to dismantle the current head and holding tank setup this week to clean and paint the bilges, and then rebuild the system. It must be at least 25 years old, and is due for replacement. There is a Y valve with direct discharge or to the tank; the tank is located under the...

    New Holding Tank, Piping & Valves

    I am about to replace the 20-year-old hoses. They are starting to permeate, and some even have checking in the outer surface layer... :( Our '88 model has the then-standard Ericson "full Monty" waste management system that allows direct overboard via Y-valve, or, into a 15 gallon (Ronco Plastics...
