Islander 30 MKII - Water Deck Fill Install
Anyone have any experience with installing a fresh water deck fill in the Islander 30 MKII?
I am thinking of putting a deck fill directly above the small starboard hanging locker near the V-berth, 1.5" clear tubing would go from deck, down through the top of the hanging locker, then through the wall of hanging locker into the starboard cubby and through the opposite wall of cubby which is back to back with the fiberglass molded water tank using a plastic thru hull.
It seems simple in nature but if others have done the same and run into any issues or if others have any tips/suggestions, Id love to hear it.
The tank is only around 20-25 gallons but bringing the house in through the head port light and having to lift up the V-berth mattress is just becoming annoying.
Also wondering if adding the thru hull at the water tank should be located at the top as id guess, but if put in the bottom of the tank, Id be able to look in the hanging locker or cubby to check my water level. If doing this, id seem there would be some mild pressure issues as filling would need to be done at a slower rate as opposed to installing the fill as close to the top which would have 0 resistance comparatively on the water being put into the tank.
