Cal-29 shower

Hello all,

I am a proud new owner of a 1974 Cal-29. While in the slip, I noticed the shower not draining completely. Then on the way back from Catalina, we got into some wind and the boat was heeled to starboard pretty good. When we got back to the slip, we noticed the water was gone from the shower floor. Any comments as the reason why the shower wont drain sitting upright. My wife will be upset if I have to heel to boat over in good wind for her to take a shower every time

Also, there is a hose coming into the bilge compartment from the port side that i dont know where it comes from.

Thanks
Troy

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

The ice box hose drains into the bilge

The head area pan has no real drain it runs through and just waterfalls into the bilge i could see over time stuff building up on the mast step beam and making it hard to drain

A button near the sink more likely would run the fresh water pump

I would say at this point there is no such thing as a "standard" to how a boat this old is wired

Many have the original 6 switch DC panel and many have brand new state of the art panels with 20 breakers

I also have a '74 Cal 2-29. The ice box is on the starboard side. Fresh water intake for the head is on the port side under bench at the bulkhead. The 2-29 has a large drain hole in the aft edge of the floor pan (1" diameter). You should be able to get a pipe brush in there to clear any debris, otherwise it should drain into the bilge without a problem.
