About To Do It Questions

I had 2 ideas to answer 2 other questions you asked early on in the posting. The first is about a fitting for pressure water at dock side. The answer is a Jabsco 44410-1000 pressure regulator (about $25 at Boatersworld.com). It allows for the attachment of a hose and installs in the freshwater system after the pressure pump. All you need are a "t" and a shutoff to seperate the 2 incoming water sources (the pressure pump and the new "dock" pressure water. It does require drilling a hole in the hull somewhere, but that''s part of the adventure. The second helpful tidbit is for the condensation. My boat is in North Carolina and we have the most humidity of any place on the planet. We bought a dehumidifer from Home Depot for about $125 and it keeps the boat dry. No moisture problems when it''s closed up, but there is an ongoing electrical cost. Drain the hose into the bilge, or a 5 gallon bucket in a cockpit locker, or down the head sink.
