I think all the 1968's water tanks are centered just aft of the fuel tanks, accessed through the lazarette hatch. It is 60 or 70 gallons and too large for normal needs. Normal being only a day or two on the hook unless you are pretty extravagant. The tank appears identical to the galvanized fuel tanks except for the fill cap on top and drain on the bottom, both are centered.
The pump is stbd about even with the trans. On mine there is a check above the pump to prevent pumping out the inlet which strangely is a male fitting.
Welcome to the club and welcome aboard the 35 fleet.
I wonder if this was a later location, Greg G was located there also, other possibility is that was where they put it with the 427 option. Chris was yours the big tank in the back or tank in the Vee?

Mine sits all the way forward under the v berth.
Ryan my waste tank is on a platform that extends from the aft of the head compartment to about even with the aft of the hanging locker in the salon. It is plastic and probably is about 15 gallons. It has an inspection port aft. The inlet (top) and discharge (bottom) are fwd. There is a cabin support above it and it is longer than the supports so it can't be removed and replaced without dissection.
If you want to really upgrade find the dissertation by The Curmudgeon Morland on the 38' Patty Wagon's head and holding tanks system. He also had a dissertation on the water tank system he installed. Possibly I am confused but I am pretty sure he had a modified tankage system for holding as well.
I am thinking it was an installation of a Vac-U-Flush.
Do you have deck connection for holding tank discharge? Strangely I have two, one connected on the port walkway by the head and one not used on the fwd deck.

Thank you so much for the replies! Can you tell me where the waste tank sits? My current setup has the waste tank as an integrated part of the head and isn't big enough for our needs. Thanks again!
Ryan, look at your hull side in the area of the head. The tank will need a vent to the outside for flushing, the displaced air has to go somewhere. The pump out caps do have a vent hole as well. If you have the side vent it probably was fitted with the tank in the bilge.
