Pearson 10M water/shower job

Project........fairly handy..is replacing all the the water systems a huge deal? The tanks are fine. Sinks and toliet need replacing anyway. Is a warm shower possible?

Oil stained sole..rip out or treat? Im not sure the small will go away. Oh ya the leaky tank has been addressed.

Usually the major difficulty with such projects is the access to both remove the old and reinstall the new - some of which will depend on what you choose to use as replacement.

Our boat was replumbed by the PO in "Pex"(?) with the push-lock removable fittings and it's worked out quite well - but this material is fairly stiff and may not snake easily into tight or confined or multi-bend paths easily. Make sure you choose a product that is rated for potable water.

Warm/Hot water is a possibility if you have FW cooling, but is a bit costly with reworking your cooling system and buying the HW heater/tank. Instant HW units are available but generally frowned upon by insurance companies, and they tend to take up more valuable space in the relatively confined head... Even though we have HW on board we virtually never shower below - we use sun showers on deck in the summer and usually shore facilities in the off season.

Beyond the physical access this is no more difficult than replumbing at home.

The old/stained/smelly cabin sole - I'd say rip it out and replace it with something new for best results. Lots of options here but try to avoid choosing carpet.

Thanks. We are on a mooring a shower would be a poular add. The existing HW tank is shot rusted out. I like the sun shower idea.

If you're on a mooring and you want a proper shower, it's always possible to leave the sun/solar shower on deck and run the nozzle down the head hatch.. you'll have privacy.

I'm generally 'anti-shower-below' just because it's hard enough to battle the moisture and humidity issues without adding to them intentionally. Some years back we even cobbled up a 'surround' to hoist on a halyard so that we could properly (sans swimsuit) shower on deck - a couple of shower curtains hung on a 'cage' made out of hula hoops! After a while it wasn't worth the hassle of setting up and storing.

btw we've had great success (and longevity) with these ones from "Advanced Elements"

Did you get your 10m replumbed? I have run all new hoses on my 10m, but with the port hose from tank to tank selector that disappears beneath the nav station, I gave up with the snake and ran the hoses through the bilge which made it easy.

If you once had a hot water tank, it isn't that hard to install a new one was yours to port I'd the engine, in the space between the quarter berth and the engine cover or in the starboard locker. I think the starboard cockpit locker makes more sense.

Put some pickup somewhere if you have done it. Both Graham Bryan and one other have been 10m gurus. They are always helpful.

Lots of pics available. What hull number is your 10m.
