Water heater

Does anyone know the overall size of the water heater on a 1985 sovereign 26'? I am planning on replacing it with a Gerard tankless, but would like to order the heater first, as I plan to take it out on my time off a few weeks from now.

I think you have a 6 gallon heater. This will probably be close to what you have for dimensions:

If you can track down a 1986 manual, even better. I don't think that dimensions have changed too much though. I replaced my 1972 water heater with a new Atwood and it was a direct swap, so I think the dimensions are pretty close.
