Holy crap, Larry! You've thought of everything...even a dance pole. This is the second KK I've seen with one. Brittania's 54 has a taller one in the fwd cabin.

We had a good weekend with the port side coming together. Loosing 22" of tanks opens up some space. We moved the start bank and water heater to the aft end of the tanks for more access around the engine.

Tomorrow we start on the starboard side and we'll see how everything fits there. We'll start running cables and hoses then. In theory, the house bank, the 10-T105's, hasn't changed or moved so that should go smoothly.

Don't tell Lena. She'll be checking the guest list.

Looking good Larry.

If I can make another couple of suggestions, consider putting Dri-Deck mat under things like your water heater, muffler, pumps, etc. I've found that keeps the areas under those kinds of things dry and it's easy to flush out under them to keep them clean as well.

And since I believe you are using wet cell batteries, think about dusting the bottom of your battery boxes with baking soda before putting the batteries in the boxes. The soda does a great job of soaking up and neutralizing and water/acid spills.

Thanks guys, but I'm not sure about the sense of pleasure. At times I think an ice pick in the forehead would be less painful.

Thanks Bill, good suggestions. I'm using Dri-Deck in a few areas but not under the water heater or muffler yet. I'll check it out. The water pump is raised to keep dry and for vibration. I'll post a picture later.

I should have done the baking soda when I originally installed this set of batteries. When we removed them, there was acid in one box. It turns out, one of the T-105's leaked at the top seam, a manufacturers defect.

Here's what we've done for the water pump and the vacuum pump for the head. It's easy to check for leaks and I think it helps reduce noise/vibration. I still need to add a chafe bushing where the wires exit the wall plus plumb the pump in but we're getting close. Hopefully this weekend the plumbing will be done if Lena lets me out.

Everything looks good, Larry. I will be interested to see how this install works out. I'm not happy with the location of my water pump. It's in the bilge under the electrical panel forward of the engine. I'd like to relocate it on the starboard side, proximate with the water heater and the water filters. The pump has failed twice and I believe it is because there is no filter prior to the pump. Are these pumps self priming?

Yeah mounting them on hose as isolators does help.

And yes those pumps are self priming.

She's alive! We have systems, well except for one. We hooked up the house/DC side and all is good except the inverter/charger. We have a old Zantrex that's now keeping the batteries topped off till we figure it out but the water, refrigeration, AC/heat, lights, head, etc. all are good. The thru-hulls are installed, bonded and the hoses hooked up or are ready to go. The sight tubes and deck fills are plumbed. We've changed the packing to GFO and the bottom is painted. The water-maker and cock-pit water we'll do in the slip. We may change the domestic water to PEX later. I stripped the old system out after 29 years and 4 owners and put it back using ˝” PVC water hose just to get things up and running.

The engine, fuel lines from the manifolds, the starting DC wiring harness/cables will go in on Monday and hopefully we'll be back underway by Thursday or Friday. I can actually see the light at the end of the tunnel - and I don't think it's a train coming our way.

Are you going new on the manifold valves and the plumbing from the new tanks to the newly rebuilt engine?

Pretty....

I would offer another clamp to the accumulator. If for nothing else than redundancy.
