The galley wasnt made for this but I need the space and tools have to live somewhere..
Its almost time to have some basic facilities aboard, so it wont be long before the head is connected up to the 50 gallon holding tank. Its all fitted in very neatly and im flushed with pride !!!
I had to drill and tap the top of the tank to take a half inch nipple for the vent and getting it in through the floor frame was tricky but it just fitted.
The outlet at the bottom feeds into a Y valve which allows me to either self pumpout via the Henderson manual pump or marina suck out
For 5 months, ive been playing hopscotch every time ove walked over the steel framework above the engine compartment. I havent fallen in yet but im not going to chance it any longer so today saw the start of the deck going down. I need to make a few hatches for access but once its done im going to enjoy using this huge space
