Port Water Tank Replacement
|A look inside the old tank with a red arrow that indicates the location of the cracks. |
It was also cracked through the threads of the inlet hose fitting.
|The old tank is on its way to being recycled. |
This should make a lot of plastic bottles.
|We thoroughly cleaned the area below the tank while it was removed. |
The cream colored shapes on the hull beneath the tank are expanded
foam--this creates a nice uniform support for the tank.
|The fact that I left this little (Qest nipple) fitting on the old tank caused |
some delays in installation of the new tank.
