Well, sort of willing, if you mean me. I did use 5200 to bond the backing plates to the flange adapters.



But I wimped out on using it to bond the backing plate assemblies to the hull. Went with reinforced epoxy instead. I'll know tomorrow how the first one did.

Angus, real men use epoxy too. You'll never need to remove the backing plates and if you ever need to remove the flanged adapters, unlikely, just heat them with a torch or heat gun. They'll pop right off.

Agree, Parks. I was back at it today and have seven of the flange/backing plate assemblies epoxied into the sea chest. It's going to take dynamite to get those suckers off.

Eight in the sea chest, five in the hull. That's one less than I started with. I considered consolidating others, but didn't want to mess around with what seems to be working well currently for all the boat's systems. I will end up with two spares, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

It's a brilliant idea, alright. Wish I had a better picture. It's just in front of the starboard engine (this taken before I started swapping out through hulls). It consolidates all the ER through hulls in one easy-to-access place. A grate at the bottom keeps most larger debris from clogging the through hulls and a 1/2 inch piece of plexiglass on top lets you view them from the outside if the water's clear enough. I've heard that ALL the hull penetrations on Defevers allegedly are routed through the sea chest, but that would necessitate hose runs from the heads to the chest, one of them quite long. Plus I wouldn't want stuff from the heads or sinks discharged into the sea chest where it would be sucked into the engines, genset or AC. All of the plumbing system discharges on my boat are very close to the heads and on the sides of the hull, just below the waterline.
