George, your post caused an explosion to go off in my head (I would have said "bell" but the reaction was a lot bigger than that). This post reveals more ignorance about rigging than I'd like to...

Wow, this has been the most helpful experiences I've had on an Internet forum. I think I finally understand how my cooling system works. The raw water does the same thing in the heat exchanger that...

Yippee!!!

Took another look at the diagram and I am obviously wrong about how the raw water system works. I'll check the lines at the first opportunity and hopefully will find the missing vanes.

Thanks. I found a diagram of the plumbing system and it shows a hose going from the holding tank into the bilge. I wonder if that could be a vent line -- the 3/4" flex tube I mentioned? Since I was...

Holding tank overflow into bilge?

A week or so back I motored my Hunter 28.5 over to the head holding tank pump-out station because I figured with a capacity of just 12 gallons it had to be pretty close to full. The guy operating the...
