Don't need the cold drinks? That's ok, you can still pump the meltwater down the galley drain.
Genius, I'm changing mine up to this set up, but with my current pump, ASAP.
I used an old thru hole for the exhaust, I have an electric motor, so an easy change.

Just a nice cold splash on the face in the morning to wake you up too!
I guess we need to put this on another thread so we don't get of topic, but still pass on great ideas for modifications to the Islander 28.

Thanks for the suggestion!
