Question for you on the new tank idea.
If you want two tanks, roughly the same size as the stainless one under the setee, why not pull that one out, cut it in half and make two? That's assuming the tank is still in good shape...

Greywolf has just the one tank under the setee. For a family of three, we drained it in 8 days, only using it for dish washing and shower water (as in filling my Solar shower bag and washing in the cockpit). The boat definately lists to the tank side, especially when the septic tank is full, which is on the same side under the V-berth.

[> [> shower on M 31 -- John Farrar (puzzled), - Thursday - 12/17/09 - 2:04pm

Hey guys,

New to this forum. My wife and I are thinking about buying a Mariner 31 but would really like to know if it can be plumbed for a shower in the head. We think we have found a place for a propane water heater (boat has no hot water) and I think I can manage to get the hot water to the head but the question I have is how do I get rid of the used shower water which is now seaping through the sole of the head? Any suggestions?

Thanks much. Looking forward to joining the Mariner Club.

[> [> [> Head Sole Drain -- Randall, Murre, Mariner 31, - Thursday - 12/17/09 - 4:59pm

Murre has a drain in the head sole that connects to a 1 1/2 inch rubber hose that runs back to the bilge. You could pump the grey water from there. If you don't have that drain, that's one alternative. It's a straight shot and an easy run.

But I'd be very careful about distributing too much hot water in the head too regularly. The entire frame is made of plywood, and, brochure photos aside, is not really designed to be a shower stall. Seal the heck out of the joints and paint it again!

You'll also need to cover the ceiling (i.e. the slats behind the toilet). Water hitting the slats will run along the inside of the boat to the "upper" bilge and make a mess of any storage you have under the floorboards.

I just got a call from my broker; apparently you've seen Hibou. Follow Randalf's advice.

Sorry for the typo Randall. But then, since you are a wizard with these boats Randalf kind of works.

No worries--that was a good laugh. And thanks for the compliment, but wizardry ain't in it, or if it is, then it suggests Gandalf spent much of his time beffuddled and scratching his head and explains why the ring cycle was almost 2000 pages of book.

I believe befuddled head scratching and mumbling in tounges (obscenities)all part of wizardry and boat repair.
