Installing a holding tank in a schooner and space is limited. The rectangular West Marine tanks don't fit well near the hull. Does anyone sell a plastic sloped sided tank , or do I just build a fibreglass one that fits.

There are several companies that make a large variety of shapes and sizes of plastic tanks suitable as water and holding tanks. Yeah, here it is. A catalog from:
Kracor (tanks, fittings, coolers,boat chairs)Milwaukee Wisconsin 414-355-6335, 800-255-6335. I bought two - water and holding. High quality product.

Don't be too hasty criticising West Marine...I have not found another mail order company where they allways had what I wanted to order in stock, and they allways ship it immediately.
I've used Defender, Hamilton, and Jamestown Distributors. If I need an item soon, I am usually willing to pay the extra West Marine charges.

Why not use a Tempo plastic fuel tank? there are a few narrow slope-sided tanks in the West Marine catalog.

fuel tanks will not work, they have both their fill and outlet pipes on top, or bottom, however you look at it.

Thanks for all the help. I checked out a dozen suppliers, nothing is the ideal fit. Why cant I just lay up a fibreglass tank, and then it will fit the space. Is there any chemical reason fibreglass won't work as well assuming its a quality thick layup?

You can make tanks out of plywood and epoxy. I don't think epoxy adds any taste to drinking water, but if it is only a holding tank for waste, it won't matter.
