So glad to chat with other Present owners. For engines we have twin Ford Lehmans 135 hp with less than 200 hrs and an 8 Kw Wesyerbeke with less than 2000 hrs. We do have this mystery about the water tanks. There are 2 large ss under the bed in the main cabin. They haven't been used for some time and it appears that a drainage fitting is deteriorated. There is a ss water tank under the forward cabin the the previous renters used. The whole water/plumbing system is a crazed maze of additions and probably unused and never removed lines.
Does anyone else have these large ss tanks in the aft cabin and use them??
Desalination/watermakers looking better and better

On our 38 we have a 150 gal tank under the aft berth and a 75 gal tank under the forward berth. A PO has disconnected the forward tank from the fresh water system and used it with a washdown pump.

On our previous sailboat I built a 20 gph watermaker since we went into marinas or fuel docks very rarely. Now with the power boat I think we will be visiting fuel docks quite regularly and be able to keep the water tanks filled.

Thank you so much, our tanks under the aft berths are two sep tanks, I guess to fit. I think they are d/c'd. I have heard that the Present's may tend to plow underway ?? So thinking that aft water tanks would compensate ?
Hoping I can find a manual or info on the boat just to save time.

The only original docs I found with our boat was a wiring diagram which after all these years is pretty useless and general layout showing tanks, engines, etc., also not very useful.
