My guess, after reading your responses and looking at your photos, is that I’d need to remove the outer casing of the new tank before inserting the new water tank. Then, attach the casing to the new tank with the new tank already inside.
That might be next to impossible!

I’m sure it’s possible, you will just need to get creative getting it through the opening. The 31” is the tricky one. There should be room once it’s in, but that is why I had to remove the case, to get a better
angle so it would fit through the door.

This is really helpful. The photos are great! Thanks so much.
…just wondering if the Whale / Seaward #HF2200 can be used to replace the old Seaward #HF2000. The dimensions of the Whale / Seaward are 16” x 16” x 31”.
I had to remove the wood door frame, shelf and all of the plumbing under the sink. It was very tight, so I ended up also removing the aluminum casing on the old water heater and was able to pull it out in two pieces. Because of the size
of the 11 gallons replacement, it went in without any problem. The entire project was done in a day. Take a lot of photos before you take the old one apart. It will help you when installing the new unit.
Thanks so much for your quick response. Did you have any difficulties removing the old tank from under the sink?
I replaced mine last year with a Kuuma 11 gallon tank. So far, I am very happy with it! It was much easier to install and I have a little extra storage now under the sink.
It look like I’ll need to replace my SEAWARD #HF 2000 Hot Water Tank aboard my 2002 Catalina 400 Mark II.
…any thoughts, ideas, suggestions, etc.?
