Wait a minute now, I'm not dumping anything in my bilge.

I am my crew. So I only have to worry about what works for me. Not to mention what works for my wallet. And that's probably the main consideration at this point. After redoing all the wiring on the boat, complete with new distribution panels (which is what led to the question on water heaters), new A/P and davits, another 5 to 6 hundred seems like a lot. There is a Force 10 for around $200, but that would be iffy on space.

Mostly though, this thread was a way of thinking outloud. So far, I've replaced with new, rather than try to extend 20+ year old parts and I don't want to do anything half-a$$ed. It may only take me a day to do something, but I've generally thought about it for at least a week before deciding to do it. I not only want to put it in right, I want to be able to take it out easily if necessary. Something the PO's gave no thought to.

I appreciate all the responses. It's one thing to think about something, quite another to get "real life" input. What works in theory, doesn't always hold up so well in reality.
