RE: Monk 36 owners -- H20 tanks?

I believe Gumbo #230 has only one 100 Gal tank. under the aft bed.
A strange thing happened last night we are tied up a Point Cadet Marina in Biloxi, Ms At the end of a pier just at the entry where the strong SE winds about 15-20 have been blowing. Anyway it got pretty rough last night. About midnight I heard some one banging on a dumpster cover, I thought. Got up and looked around didn't see anything, then it got rougher and louder, maybe an empty metal oil drum fell in the water and is floating around banging on pilings or the side of the boat, no again. Finally it dawned on me it was the water sloshing around in the tank banging on the sides and top and to making the racket. Probably it could use a couple more baffles in there.
First thing this morning I moved to a better protected slip but it is still blasting out there and rocking all over the marina.
