Default 1999 Maxum 2300 SC...

O.k, just went for our very first ride on our boat.

We are BRAND NEW to boating, so you understand...what a circus that turned out to be.

Any way, I got couple of questions, being that we have NO manual or information on this boat.

1. We have a water tank, supposedly a 20 gal. Although there is a hose in the cabin for hook-up, it's not hooked to any thing. We managed to fill the cabin with @ 2" of water before we realized it may not be connected somewhere😨
2. We also got a hose for pump-out and there is a hose right next to water connection in the cabin @ toilet cubby hole on the right as you enter.

Question:
1. Where do the water tank hose hook-up to and how do I access to where the tank is located.
2. Where is the waste tank to connect the pump-out hose and how do I access that?

Mind you, the boat came with "pot-a-putty" type manual toilet so I have no idea why we have that option.

Thanks.

Please post some pictures of all these things.

If a portapot it may have an external water tank and holding tank but this was not standard. Standard was a stand alone unit.

If the PO installed the fresh and holding tanks who knows how he plumbed it. A correctly plumbed boat will have deck plates labeled water and waste.

The porta-potty does not come plumed for pump out but includes all the hoses to accomplish that

Here we go again....but why weren't you shown all this when you bought your boat by the past owner or dealer and I guess no on a survey either.......

Please take a safe boating course, good for you and the whole family. Good luck and welcome aboard.

Safety course, done and passed for both wife and I.

We bought the boat from a broker and he indicatrd that the owners "might" have the manual but, they were out of State.

As for potty, he said that's what came with it from the owner. Water tank, he said it holds 20 gallons...I found online that it's 10 gallons.

On the out side of the boat, on starboard side near the cockpit, there is a cap for both water and waste.

Like I said on my post, I have no information other than what was told to me.

Can't find any useful information online for THIS boat, as if I have the only one of a kind boat, which I know I don't.

I will post some photos tomorrow morning.

Yep 20 gallons would be rather large for this boat, my 2400 SCR has a 15 gallon.

Normally a port a pot has self contained water tank and holding chamber however some can be connected to external tanks. The water deck plate is to fill the fresh water tank and the waste is to pump out the holding tank.

Not surprised you cannot find info on this as it was far from the norm on this boat.

Still not sure what the hose is in the cabin, picture and size will be helpful when you can.

Congrats on the passing of the boating course! Make sure you tell your insurance agent for your discount. Get a VSC for your boat to make sure you have the required USCG equipment and your ready to go.

These so called manuals are really a joke! Your broker should of known all this and told you. But you will figure it all out and be none the wiser!

Ignore biggerseagar.. You will figure it out and be much more the wiser. The 2300SC came with a porta potty and the option to plumb it for a pump out.

Well phillbo you caught my snappy saying error! Please take none out and add more. I was hoping for nothing but a positive reaction to all this.

Thanks, guys/gals.

We are doing this the RIGHT WAY.

All required equipment are on board, boat was safety checked BEFORE we bought it.

So, from what I can see, the hose connectors seem to be @1" & 1-1/2" size.

I attached some pics. May be someone can shed some light on where and how to access the tank for water and how to hook-up the waste pump-out?

BTW, this potty is NOT secured to anything, just sitting on the carpeted cubby hole floor.

Thanks.
