If the body gets higher, it gets harder to get it into place and the hose used for emtying the tank will be more difficult to put in place. 
You are right with the height.I added a 50 ltr stainless on my 345 in the shower to achieve 80 lts total.
I also did not max out the height for ease of installation. This winter I was able to add a Vetus odor filter into the 19 mm vent hose.

Great Job !

The tank was build by a friend of mine. 
The first option was to reuse the old tank and then add the new capacity onto that but it turned out to be more difficult than to make a brand new tank.   
He spend 12 hours and cost of material was about 200$ or 1500 dKr.

Nice work.
I see,that you still havenīt changed the seacocks after 15 years. It might be the next upgrade?

How thick are the plates of your new tank?

I am thinking of changing toilet to a fresh water one. That way we can flush with less water as it will not form hard mix of urine and saltwater in the hose. 

Anyone with experience with fresh water toilet? Can we make the tank last longer?
