You don't say if you'll be moving or staying in one place for six to eight weeks. If you're moving, you will be buying fuel so you'll have the opportunity to take on water, have your holding tank pumped, and dump your trash and garbage. You might not actually need more water capacity.
You've been given suggestions for portable water storage. If you really want to add tanks, you'll just have to look around the boat to see where you can add permanent tanks.
I'm assuming you are already practicing water conservation. You can really cut down on your water use if you try.
