Replacing water heater

Feierabend here. Sail a Cat 30 TRBS and hot water heater just sprung the leak of death. Easy to change out from a connections point of view, but impossible to remove from boat as it was clearly put in before cabinetry. Anyone done this change out and are there any ideas for an alternate location for a new unit? Thanks

Hey fier - welcome to SN dude. You ought to re-post this question in the Gear & Maintenance forum. The gearheads won't see it here.

Moved to Gear and Maintenance.

Feierabend......you really need to investigate dismantling that joinery....can you really afford to lose that amount of space on a 30'er ?

Depending on available space under v-berth or in cockpit locker seems a logical new location.
