O'Day 31: toilet water intake through-hull

I've just taken ownership of a 1986 O'Day 31. For the life of me I can't locate the through hull for the toilet water intake. I've traced hoses as far as the boat will let me. What did I miss? Gary

p.s. I promise more questions.

We have a 86 31 and ours is on the other side of the bulkhead from the head aft.

Re: O'Day 31: toilet water intake through-hull

The original location of the head water intake on my 87 O'day 35 is, as Flfishindude points out, on the port side, under the settee. However, my boat was converted to a fresh water flush system to reduce the head odor, and there is no through hull (unless you count the freshwater deck fitting). Perhaps yours was converted to fresh?

I didn't look on the port side but will do so this weekend. I don't believe I have fresh water flush. Thanks for the help. Gary

Re: O'Day 31: toilet water intake through-hull

Gary, if it is out of the water, you could take a vacuum cleaner exhaust hose, stick it in each thru-hull one at a time, and see where the breeze comes out in the boat. Although, I'd seriously avoid the holding tank discharge while trying that.(G)

Re: O'Day 31: toilet water intake through-hull

I found it -- in the forepeak, starboard side. There was a plastic bin that I didn't realize lifts out, and there it was. The surveyor apparently couldn't find it either, as he noted that "the head was not pumping into the bowl."

By the way, the boat came with four thick binders of documentation. I haven't scanned any of it yet, but maybe there is something that you need.
