There may be differences between the 6.0, 6.7, and 7.3 Metre Minuets in their waste water plumbing, but from the notes that I have it appears that the blackwater tank was rectangular and installed between the showerpan and the streetside wardrobe. Given its basic rectangular shape, it shouldn't be too difficult to find a stock, off-the-shelf replacement from the typical vendors for RV tanks (INCA Plastics, etc.). The graywater tank in the smaller two Minuets was mounted on top of the floor in the bottom of the streetside wardrobe . . . I am not aboslutely certain that this was the case in the 7.3 Metre Minuets. The graywater (washwater) tank would be a bigger challenge as it conforms to the curve of the streetside rear corner.

Good luck with your investigation!
