Re: Cal-29 shower

nice to have both solar shower and the plumbed shower as for not draining,
plugged drain easily unclogged

RNC725 we have a 1967 Cal 30 we just bought, no shower and I'm wondering how many folks actually use the shower on a regular basis. our old boat was a 26' and we simply used a solar shower at the stern ladder.

Thoughts? Advice?

JamieVT Also, I forgot to say that the pull switch which turns on the bilge pump is located on the right front of the sink base.

helmanta i also need a shower curtain. do you guys have any specs on a a shower curtain, it looks like the track is still there.

helmanta this is what my shower looks like. im thinking i might be able to get a small brush in there like your thinking, just smaller.

JamieVT I also have a '74 Cal 2-29. The ice box is on the starboard side. Fresh water intake for the head is on the port side under bench at the bulkhead. The 2-29 has a large drain hole in the aft edge of the floor pan (1" diameter). You should be able to get a pipe brush in there to clear any debris, otherwise it should drain into the bilge without a problem.

helmanta ahhh, i see.

thank much for the help. im looking forward to borescoping it here in a couple of weeks. i have found a borescope on craigslist for 110.

tommays A button near the sink more likely would run the fresh water pump

I would say at this point there is no such thing as a "standard" to how a boat this old is wired

Many have the original 6 switch DC panel and many have brand new state of the art panels with 20 breakers

helmanta then did the switch on the cabinet under the sink control the bilge pump then?

tommays The ice box hose drains into the bilge

The head area pan has no real drain it runs through and just waterfalls into the bilge i could see over time stuff building up on the mast step beam and making it hard to drain
