This Summers project started while I was washing my hands after finding that the old bow thruster aux oil tank had leaked again. The water had its typical if you had not used it in a while stench and turned my silver ring brownish black. Went down into the engine room and went to open the tank drain and found out that it had been leaking through pinholes in the aluminum. I pulled the old tank out. I decided to fabricate new wood for the new tank to sit on.
While the old tank was out and I had the room I focused some attention to the freshwater system that appeared to be weeping too and totally re glassed and repaired rotted wood under it as replacement would have been extremely labor intensive.
All New plumbing manifold custom made in PEX Piping
While moving Seawater cooling hoses for the main engine found out that the hoses were in poor condition and weeping tiem to replace.
While replacing these hoses the original trans oil cooler broke and I had to replace it
Our ac sump we made was a cut off battery box and a bilge pump it was acting up so replace with a real ac sump while working on the ac I acid washed it and replaced hoses and a broken ball valve.
I wanted to straighten wires and put into wire loom to neaten and protect.
Added a step to keep people from stepping on the exhaust hose
