Re: Cockpit Drains
The engine is out and I started to puzzle out the MSD system. It is more confusing than advanced algebra. It seems I have a gray water tank and a black water tank, there is a wye valve under the floorboards marked Overboard and Holding tank. At the rear of the heasd is a manual pump. It feeeds into a a Y, the other two legs go to the deck fitting and I assume the thru hull. If you want to pump the gray water tank yu jhave to pump it through the black water tank.
Anyway, what a system, I later found out the manual pump was de riguer equipment for 1980 vintage boats.
Guess I will have to replace most if not all of this or simpley pull the head, pump the tanks and install prta-potti for short cruises.
What water require capture of gray water? All my sinks drain direct via thru hulls, why don;t they go to the grey water tank?
Experience teaches us things we would rather not know.
