Much of this is also related to the fact that the other thing I decided along the way was that I'd put enough effort into this pattern to warrant selling it.
Anyway, all that is done and I'm proud to say, here you go! My first for sale pattern.
Tappan Zee Tank
I named this tank after the Tappan Zee Bridge because, not only was it the second plan of another bridge-named tank, but also the tank's diagonal line design mimics the strong diagonal lines that make up its superstructure.
The pattern is for sale only on Ravelry, and is as of now priced at $5.00 (US). Click here for the Ravelry page, or click the following button to purchase:

Ug, code generators. The markup's a bit messed up. Think I fixed it but if it looks wacky in your browser, I'm sorry. I'll clean it up at a later date.
