very nicely done, but I will admit I was sweating along with you on the initial cuts and then when you open the floor it looked like a scene out of Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom!

Yeah, it still does. That's going to take a lot of elbow grease. I think 35 years of showers draining to the bilge caused a lot of it. Soap and shampoo and conditioner and body oils and whatever else goes down the drain. The PO didn't use the boat that much but I think they stayed on it sometimes.

Hatch

Things went slower than I wanted yesterday so here is the penultimate picture, still one more to come.




Here is a picture of the hatch with the spacer pieces, frame and hatch all in place, waiting for the glue and epoxy to set. You can see the waxed paper barrier to prevent glue or epoxy migration from locking the whole mess in place. You can also see pieces of laminate (yeah, working that too) inserted betweeen the frame and plug to ensure enough room for moisture swelling and dirt. (Thanks psneeld for reminding me!)

Bilge pump wiring

http://www.trawlerforum.com/forums/m...icture1842.jpg

I have a rule 2000 pump (2 wire) and a Johnson float switch (3 wire) and a seadog 3-way switch. The 3-way switch has 6 wires, 2 for power and 2 each for each float switch. So where do I connect the second brown wire from the Johnson switch?

No, I had to put in the new hatch so I could get to the old lectra-san system to remove it. In the end I had to cut a bigger hole in the deck around the lectra-san to get it out. I also couldn't stand the nasty looking bilge! There is still a lot of cleanup to do down there but at least now I can see everything and was able to re-route the wiring and hoses to a manageable system. I was also able to route the new toilet discharge hoses to the previously unused holding tank. Still working on adding a waste pump and routing it to a through hull. While at it, I'm re doing the bilge pump with 2 new float switches, a bilge pump switch and high water alarm. Previously it only had a circuit breaker for the bilge pump.

another try at posting schematics

[QUOTE]

These are the schematics for the bilge pump, float switches and bilge pump switch. I'll experiment with the connections today but if someone has a clue, please let me in on it.

Here's another hatch in need of attention on an unidentified member's boat. OMG!!!



I think the shredded duct tape lends a nice earthy feel to this otherwise impeccable vessel!
