Re: newbe question about freshwater tanks

Thanks for your responses.

My thought was gut the tank and use lake water for hand washing and head. Then install a ro system for drinking water with a uv light. I just thought this made more sense than leaving a tank onboard that needs cleaning and smells If you neglect it and it sounds like most won't drink it anyway.

Ok more about the boat. Cabinets, teak, cushions, sails, are in good shape the boat has been stored indoors for 5 years. Unfortunately water got inside. The floor is built up with plywood and carpeted. The floor is mushy in spots I expect it will all need replacing and carpet.

My purchase price is swapping for a job I did. My out of pocket expense is around $800.00. Now for the kicker. This boat is 1976 reinnall 26 foot.

Through my research reinnall is not looked at highly. Its not to late for me to walk on this deal but I fealt the price is right and I have the ability to undertake this project. Keep in mind this my first sailboat. I have owned power boats in the past.
