Does anyone know the correct size of a Sportsman waste holding tank?

No, but you want the biggest one you can fit!

Ha !! I agree !

The angles were driving me nuts so I did a few mockups to get the biggest stock size I could into the area

15 Gallon - 15W x 25L x 11H is the size I am going with. The 20 gallon would not fit the space.

This size will give me enough room for a base support and inspection port without making it too tall.

I had the tank strapped in and did not like the way it was holding. I decided I wanted a hard mount and came up with this 1/8 inch flat bar, 2 - 10 inch battery hold down kits and some hardware to screw it all together.
