Guest cabin dressing room update #2



The last few weeks have found me getting the Carver boat ready for it's new owner so not much has been getting done on the boat build. Now that the carver is finished and out of the shop, I'm back working on the boat build.

I received the new sink so I was able to complete the installation of the top, the sink, and the faucet. All the cabin plumbing connections are now complete. If I had the pressure pump and a couple of days work, I'd be able to use the sinks.

I installed a new valve for the through hull fitting under the guest cabin sink. The valve I had originally installed was a cheap gate valve that was probably doomed for failure. I installed a more corrosion resistant ball valve in place of the gate valve and hopefully saved myself a future headache. I had read on another forum that gate valves have no place on boats, and I agree.

The through hull fitting under this sink is the only through hull fitting for the cabins sinks and shower. This through hull fitting is a stainless steel piece of pipe, welded in to the hull that is threaded on the inboard end. The ball valve threads on to the pipe, and that is my basic through hull fitting. If gray water needs to be held, the red handled ball valve is shut, the black handled ball valve is opened, and the sump pump selector valve is moved to the holding tank position, then all the gray water goes to the holding tank. If we can discharge gray water, the red handled ball valve is opened, the black handled ball valve is closed, and the sump selector valve is moved to the discharge position so all gray water is either pumped or gravity flow overboard.

The galley sink, the clothes washing machine, and the half bath above will have another holding tank and one through hull fitting to deal with that gray water.

  1. Do you have any concerns as far as weight goes? I am sure you have ran the numbers but it seems like a lot of heavy interior woods would accumulate a pretty good total.

  2. Hi Jason,

    Weight is always something to consider. I'm good so far in regard to what this boat will displace in full cruising gear and how I'm fitting it out. I am paying pretty close attention to how the weight is being distributed.
