Some days are good days and some not so good
Yesterday was not a good day on the boat. Today was fantastic.
Yesterday started out with me deciding it would be the day that I would replace the Purasan on the boat with an Electroscan type 1 MSD. Sounds simple enough right, nope not at all.
As a bit of background...
When I had my boat repowered in 2011 I had them remove the large holding tank which was blocking access to the outboard side of me starboard engine and replace it with a Raritan Hold N treat system. This is a prepackaged holding tank and type 1 MSD. I told the shipyard where to installit, and they did just that.
I removed the purasan, that went fairly smoothly but then i noticed the macerator pump sitting on top of the holding tank and the first thing I thought was "geez, glad that thing never failed, i bet its a bugger to get out".
Well, it was. That because the space that they installed the hold n treat was about 2" taller than the actual hold n treat, and the stupid macerator pump was of course bolted to the top of it. Yippee.
So I started to try to remove it. Then 8 hours later I got it out after dissembling my settee in the salon to get to an access panel.
That was the end of my day. I ate dinner in the pilothouse and was dead dog tired.
Today was a much better day. I relocated the macerator pump so it is not only easy to get to, but it is the highest point in the waste system, something I'm certain I'll be thanking myself for come maintenance time.
