And here is the platform we made aboard our 34...stand back





The crack you see on the bulkhead is the Formica . We will probably route the platform forward edges to blend it a little more.

Cheers,

That's okay, I just stood back across room to view them.

Groco does go a bit crazy with the paint. Another poster in this thread mentioned that his new Groco bowl was uneven at the mating surface causing leaks, perhaps that was your issue. For what you pay for a Groco there should be NO issues.

The Groco is in there now. If it should become problematic I'll most likely switch to a Raritan which means I'll have to create some kind of platform extension for it to bolt to. Doable but not as asthetically pleasing as the current installation.

Bolts at the base of the china bowl. First new groco we didn't check the bolts and leaked all over cause they were all loose. Second time we tightened before installation and still leaked. I took apart, and the only thing i could see out of place between the china bowl and bronze seat was some overspray from the paint they paint the bronze, it was on the gasket and bronze base...see pics.
I thought it was a liquid gasket of some sorts at first but Groco said no.

All of the above leaked at the big gasket between the bowl and the base.

Let me know if yours does not leak. I would love to go back to a Groco if they do not leak any longer. The Raritan fits in the PS34, but the Groco fits much, much better.

Thanks, Dale. I'll pop that open today and have a look, if I can find my boat. We are locked in a dungeon of fog today. Al

The slit on the joker valve must be perpendicular to a line drawn across the mounting holes. The diagram that Groco has is not correct.
