- SEA COCK and plumbing diagrams: We prepared
diagrams and annotated photos showing the location of each through hull
fitting. A PDF copy of this manual can be viewed by clicking [here].
- BILGE PUMPS. The rules require "two
permanently installed manual bilge pumps, one operable above, the
other below deck. Each pump shall be operable with all cockpit seats,
hatches and companionways shut and shall have permanently installed
discharge pipe(s) of sufficient capacity to accommodate simultaneously
both pumps". I installed a second Whale Gusher pump
under the port side
settee and ran the hose to a new overboard fitting next to the existing fitting. We also converted the engine winterizing valve to
a screened intake in the bilge.
