Cat 30 Macerator Question

Hi, all. Took delivery of my new boat today and tomorrow it goes in for bottom painting. It came with a new macerator pump, 1 1/2" through-hull, and "Y" valve. What I would like to know is where to put the new through-hull? I am guessing that it would be under the port lazerette (sp?), Teed off of the main waste pump out line. Do any Cat 30 owners have a macerator installed, and if so, where is it located?

Thanks, montenido

Where's the holding tank and do you mean it only has a deck pump out now? If by "main waste pump out line" you mean the one on deck, the answer is no, not usually. Catalinas usual set-up is to thread one of those Jabsco macerator pumps into the side of the tank (near bottom)) so you are pumping macerated product instead of trying to suck unmacerated product thru a hose. Which is usually also arranged to make the shorest run possible to a thru hull.
Bigger boats will have a more robust diaprahm (sp? senior moment) pump so they can suck stuff from the forward head 40 feet away.

"product", eh? cool. Never thought of it that way.

On my 1984 C30, the holding tank is under the port settee. The macerator pump is also located on the port side, just forward of the engine.

You can find a link to a drawing of the configuration on the Catalina 30 website at:
