FLEXIBLE HOLDING TANK FOR PLEASURECRAFT SANITARY SYSTEM

The purpose of this effort was to develop a flexible holding tank to collect waste products in small pleasurecraft. Its use is primarily proposed as a convenient means for modifying existing craft so as to comply with existing and proposed new legislation on the subject of water pollution. A survey delineated numerous locations where a flexible tank could be located in the various craft under consideration and a corrugated design was conceived which will conform to most of these. The placement of the flexible tank in several locations was successfully demonstrated using a boat mock-up. Performance tests, also conducted, showed that the tank should be used both as a simple holding tank or as a reservoir in a recirculating sanitary system.
