WS43 Waste Holding Tank replacement

    The original aluminum waste holding tank on our 43 has failed and we're using a bladder with padding in what's left of the V shaped tank, but we eventually plan to replace the tank with a molded poly tank.  That will require cutting into the sole and possibly removing the shower pan and maybe more. I've asked a couple owners that did this replacement, but don't have details to develop a cut plan to minimize visible cuts and keep the forward sole presentable.

    If anyone has direct knowledge and could share what worked for them (or didn't), that would be super helpful.  Our boat is the "bachelor" layout with an aft cabin and workbench/sail locker up front. I'm not afraid to do it just want to benefit from any experience on what worked or what didn't. Thanks in advance for any guidance you can offer...
