Leaking holding tank

Postby Woodworker2001 » Sun Mar 22, 2020 5:08 pm

Well I got a real kick in the nuts here today as I was cleaning up and getting ready to lave the boat. Seen some odd green like residue between the battery and waste holding tank. Right up against the tank looked to be damp. So I started wiping it up and a little bit later checked it and it was getting wet again coming from under the tank. :banghead:
:censored: Me. As anyone with a 3000 express knows I don’t see a way that tank comes out. Without at a minimum pulling the battery hatch actuator and exhaust off that side of the motor.

I really hate being a boat owner right now!!!!

OUCH!!! How about a picture? Is the tank empty? I wonder if there is a product you could float in there to seal any leaks.

Picture will be difficult with all none essential travel and business in lock down after midnight Monday. No the tank isn’t empty. The people who stored it were supposed to empty it but apparently missed pumping mind out when they pulled it :angry: I am beyond frustrated with it right now. The problem Gould be getting it clean #1 and then how would you get the product in there #2. What a day this has been just when I started to feel ok about the work I got done.
