Re: OMI 3-compartment insulated tank is too big?

Greg,

Yes, two heads, back to back, with an air space. You can see this in the rivet pattern on the outside of the car where there is a circumferential row of rivets where each head attaches.

Bruce,
With the domed heads, would there be one on each compartment, creating an air void between the compartments?  I have always assumed, without any reason, that there was one head in the tank, curved in one direction or the other, but that doesn't seem like it would create the volume loss that you describe.
Thanks
Greg
