Hi

I just bought a Hanse 355, 3 cabin. How do I open/close the waste tank?

Thanks

The holding tank is simply operated by the sea cock below it.
There is no Y-valve so once you start using it, you need to continue using it until you can empty it.
It is only about 35 litres so can fill quickly.

If it overflows where does outlet go? Into the boat or outside?

Nyholm,

There is a overflow outlet on the outside of the hull near where the sullage tank is located about 20cms below the deck level. If the tank overflows sullage will run down the outside of the hull from this overflow outlet. These can become clogged up so it might be worthwhile unscrewing the cover on the outside of the hull and checking the outlet is not clogged up.
