Re: Spirit 23 modifications

tschmidty I like the instrument location! I may think about doing that. Though it may make in/egress to my vberth more difficult as the port side has a bulkhead across it

Re: Spirit 23 modifications

I had a question for windyway who mounted the bilge pumps in front of the s/b trunk. How did you route the bilge hoses? Out the back to the bilge makes sense but the only question I have is whether there would be too much back flow when the pump stops from that long of a run.

I have 2 bilge electric pumps & 1 manual pickup under there. The electric pumps are routed on each of the settees on the inbrd corner tucked out of the way from the access hatches. They both go overbrd just behind the aft bulkhead & just under the bumper rubber port & stbrd sides. I made all the pumps have there own outlets cause I wanted to know which ones were working cause the second backup pump's pickup is higher than primary's one. The manual pickup goes to it's stock location out the back. If I have to use the manual pump with 2 electric pumps in there, back flow will be the least of my worries!

What type of angles do you want specifically? If I do lots of pictures of the windlass install I'll put it under it's own thread.
