  • DSCF4393.jpg (43068 bytes)Bilge water tank level check. When we pulled out the tanks we had threaded fittings welding onto the top, and then drilled three inch holes in the floorboards above. I glued leather around the edge of the resulting insert and added a thin ring of aluminum to the bottom of the floor board to support the cover. We donít check them that often but it nice to know where we stand.


  • Footpump for galley sink with Y valve for thru-hull (fresh or salt)DSCF4413.jpg (47730 bytes)


  • Cut large rubermade bins to fit in bilge, glass in wood blocks to hold Aluminum Angle iron to keep in place.


  • Use screw in plastic deck plates mounted inside the cabin to add easy access to steering cables and tank inlets etc if NOT easily accessible otherwise. I added mine near the foot of the aft berths.


  • DSCF4398.jpg (38753 bytes)Convert hanging lockers to shelved storage. I used angle iron aluminum (home depot) to add shelves, they go in easy and could revert back to hanging in 2 minutes. I also used U shaped aluminum brackets to slide Ikea storage bins into, which are very small and unobtrusive once the bins are removed.
