I was told when I bought my boat (Hull #140) that it DID NOT have a waste holding tank. Subsequent investigation hath shown this not to be the case. I do, indeed, have a holding tank connected to a two-way valve from the head. What I DON'T have is a pump-out on deck. I need some guidance on how this system operates and how I would empty the tank. Anyone else have a boat set up this way?

Here's a pic:

EDIT: Pic should work now. I do not have a pump out on deck or anywhere else. The only through hull connected to the system is the overboard dump valve. However, the PO had a laminated card on the boat identifying all the pump out stations along the Southern California coast, so he must have had a way to pump out the holding tank, I just can't figure out how he did it. Also, the holding tank is beneath the water tank in the v-berth and is not readily accessible.

Hi Eric
I could not open your picture. Send it to me at ronbreault@dolphin24.org.

A couple of questions. Where in the system is your two way valve? How is the holding tank set up for its discharge?
