42 Passage water tank replacement

Has anyone ever changed or worked on the main water tank of this vessel as I'm going to have to repair mine and any pointers would be greatly helpful

Re: 42 Passage water tank replacement

I had these guys fabricate a brand new custom tank for me last year. Very pleased with quality, service and price. You usually have to pick two.

there are two tanks actually, one to port under the settee with the aft end just below the water heater and the aft end of the settee...you will likely need to remove some cabinetry/seat frames and flooring to get access...of course pull up and set aside the water heater. there she be. now is also the time to replace hoses, valves and filters so plan ahead.

the other is under the vberth in the fore peak, and it, too, will require some gymnastics to get it out. Most likely will require cutting to get it out, unless you have two or three sets of hands and pad the entire center line of the boat....then you still may need those hands to actually get it out the companionway. Measure and test with a carboard template to make sure you have clearance under the bimini/dodger and the framing that goes with it. It is very awkward to manhandle.

I would likely go with multiple smaller tanks for ease of replacement....and for sure out of plastic, triple M is great. I made a "manifold" for filling as well as distribution, such that any tank or any source can be shut off, or not used. Labeling is critical for future owners and a drawing with part numbers, sizes and shapes in the ships log.

Best of luck. It is a DIY job, if you are handy, but costly (due to the labor and hands needed) if you get the yard to do it.

Re: 42 Passage water tank replacement

Thanks... I was afraid it would be that much work. Maybe a next winter job. Has anyone replaced the reefing system within the boom? Not sure how to get it apart - looks like pop rivets
