Re: Jeanneau Attalia

That's what I thought. But the y valve ( on the aft side of the head wall) seems to have some other function. I think it might link up with the manual bilge pump (also on the aft wall). One of the hoses for example ends up in the lowest part of the floor in the head, underneath the floorboard. This y valve can't be linked to the head or the holding tank.

The discharge hose from the Jabsco head seems to go straight out through the aft wall in the head and does not come back.

Oddly, I have the original owners manual and there is not a single diagram that describes any of this.

Re: Jeanneau Attalia

THat does not surprise me. As my boat had NEVER HAD the lines to the tank hooked up. ALways discharged straight over board. Slightly illegal for the last 10-15 yrs before I bought it!

So I had run them myself. Initially ut in a y vlave, got rid of those, straingt to the tank, then another line to the discharge via the manual pump. I have yet to use the manual pump, as I have 2 dump stations at my marina, and at least one at every marina I seem to go to here in Puget sound. Not sure why I even have the overboard part hooked up!

Re: Jeanneau Attalia

Marty how did you do that? I've always used pump out at the marina and it was a vacuum system where they attach the hose and then it would suck everything out. It was a great marina, all I had to do was open it up and they would do the rest .

Re: Jeanneau Attalia

Mark,

Ill be using the vacuum pump tomorrow to empty the boat before a race saturday. As I said, the previous/original owner of the boat, never put hoses into the tank. When you flushed, the head flushed overboard ALL the time. While legal back in 85, not when I bought her in 2005. So I ran lines into the tank, along with one that could pump overboard direct where legal. Eventually, I said screw that option, one never used it! So straight into the tank it goes. Have thought about disconnecting the manual overboard pump, as I will probably never be where I can dump legally overboard. So the vacuum option at various and sundry marina's is really the only option I have.

Re: Jeanneau Attalia

I too love the vacuum pump out but can't seem to locate one in Barbados...and I don't seem to have any valves or hoses that would indicate ability to pump overboard. Which I did not care about when I was in Canada but now.... It looks like I will have to do some re engineering.

Racing Saturday! Good on you. I can't wait for the racing season to start here. Mango Bowl end of November in St-Lucia..

Re: Jeanneau Attalia

Arcadia Headlining Replacement

Mark,

WHile it does not show the pipe routing, here is the article on the jeanneau owners site of my head redo. You can see on the back wall a slightly triangular black part. That is my manual pump to pump the tank overboard. The actual tank is behind this wall in the cockpit locker. Then it becomes a matter of getting the approx 2" hoses from the head to the tank to the pump and overboard. Or fit a Y with in the cabinet, then a pipe to the overboard valve.

Re: Jeanneau Attalia

i think I figured out what to do. My particular model of Attalia does not have a valve with a thru hull. It ONLY goes into the holding tank and the tank can only be pumped out. I think it was finished for the Great Lakes and not for any offshore work where you can discharge. Rather than haul out and put in a thru hull with a series of valves etc, I'm going to use a an electric diaphragm pump with a 1 1)2 connector to the holding tank deck fitting with some connecting pipe and then, when I'm offshore in clement weather, I,ll hook it up and send it overboard.

Re: Jeanneau Attalia

That could be correct. You would need a thru hull to do what I have. If you do not have one, then somethign as you describe would be your only option.

Re: Jeanneau Attalia

Hi every one,

This is my first time writing on this form,

I would like to introduce myself, I am an owner of Jeanneau Attalia 1986, since 2000 and I absolutely love my boat. Through out the years I have been sailing with my boat (AKA Bettina) through the Mediterranean sea. from Israel to Cyprus, Turkey, Greece, Italy and Spain, my Bettina took anywhere safe and sound.

I am sailing with my Bettina not only for cruising but also for racing and I have more than a dozen trophies achieved over the years.



I would love to share my experiences and to learn from all Jeanneau Attalia Owners out there as a pround owner of this wonderful model

Have a safe sailing
Ido
