Hi,
Yes, any bilge water will be able to flow to three centrally located bilge pumps divided by bulkheads. One in the fwd section, one mid ships and one aft.

It's a good one, and I did the same - had to - but make sure the pump is about the level of the tank or only barely above it, because the claims they make for them being self-priming can be, well…let's just say…exaggerated. Certainly the TMC one is useless for that, mine is only just above the tank top and would never self prime, and I had to set a tap arrangement so I could actually flush the toilet down the tank outlet line to the pump every time to prime it, then reset them all again to pump out. The Jabsco one would be better - just costs more. Johnson would also have one, but I have no idea how good it is for self-priming. Small, but important point. Boy I envy you being able to start and do all that stuff from scratch before everything is closed in and confined.

Hi Pete,
Thanks mate. With the pump in the engine room, I am fortunate enough to have it sit below the bottom of the tank assisting in it priming (I hope) ... The tank is sitting about 200mm up from the keel. The pump I got is a Jabsco one. Hopefully it works well. The toilet will be a Jabsco saltwater flush unit with a macerator on it to feed it all into the holding tank but priming shouldn't be an issue as the toilet will be above the holding tank. Well, that's how it's played out in my head. Whether or not it works is yet to be determined lol

Do you have any Vented loops on the discharge hose from the holding tank? I wasn't going to bother but now I'm thinking maybe I should but then I'm like well the seacock will only be open during discharge which is a whole of 3mins and then shut afterwards so don't see the value in it. If I were leaving the seacock open all the time then yes. Like the saltwater intake to the toilet. I will put a vented loop on that cause she'll be open all the time or shouldn't I bother on the toilet cause it has a shut off valve??? ... So much reading has confused the sh!t out of me. (Pun intended)

What's your thoughts?

Sounds like you have it sussed well Matt. The Jabsco should work well. My TMC has corroded solid now so I will replace it with a Jabsco - which is supposed to be self-priming for a metre height at least. However, the TMC claimed that when I bought it. I notice they don't now.

As to the vented loop. No, I agree with you. I did not do that for the pump out line because, as you say, when not actually pumping out the seacock, (and in my case, another tap in the out line), are closed completely. I am a great believer in KISS.
The intake for raw water is a different matter, but as my loo is above the waterline, it has a valve in line as you say, and the loo actually slowly drains over time anyway, so I don't have a vented loop in that either - works for me. Vented loops are really more critical for those with enough water capacity to have fresh water flush, and water just must not siphon back from loo to tank, obviously.

Well it's Saturday so I started bashing away at the boat again. I picked up a 930x930x2000 shower cubicle and toughened safety glass shower screen during the week so took that down and dry fitted it. I bought some reducers and a 40mm hose barb for the shower drain so it can go straight in to the 40mm fitting of the sump pump kit. I finished of the sub floor, and installed the toilet waste tank and ply cover. Tomorrow I'll start framing out for the cubicle and toilet. My sine wave inverter arrived during the week also. Was surprised at how big it is. Have to rethink about where I can put it now. Didn't expect it to be so big 🙀👎 tho if i had read the description better I would have seen the size :-/

Where had everyone put their inverter?

Well that's all for now. Flics hinting at me to start the BBQ so better go!

Cheers for looking

It's actually an inverter/charger, this was an early model before trace was taken over by xantrex. I've been told this was the best model trace/ heart came out with. Only failed us at begging when we got the boat but just reset it and it was fine. We also have a spare that came with the boat.

Ah sweet. Yeah mine is just an inverter. Will have solar panels as well as the over size alternator so not sure if I need a charger or not.

Well the weekend is over for another week and thus the building is at rest for another 5 days. I finished off the framing for the shower cubicle. I started the framing for the bed and battery enclosure. I pulled out 16x100ah batteries and cleaned them up for installation next weekend. I Did some final cutting in of paint on the engine room ceiling before rolling it next weekend.

That's all for now.

Cheers.
