My 1975 B32 hull 165 has a drain in the floor of the head. Some day I shall need to replace the hose that runs to the pump for that grey water from the shower. Does anyone know if that floor can come out so the hose can be replaced or can the hose be replaced without removing the floor?

Has anyone done this?

Thanks

Eric, the drain is no more than a hole in the floor about an inch in diameter with a molded tailpiece for the hose to go on to. it is a smaller version of the exhaust fitting in the stern. It sounds like you are describing a tub drain for a regular bathtub. I wish. That would be easier. I'd send a photo but I'm not on the mainland. Perhaps a shower was an option. The head faucet has a diverter and the overhead has a shower curtain track. It is very tight.

thanks very much.

My bilge stops just at or a bit forward of the galley. I have the standard keel. There is a platform in that area of the bilge for a shower pump which had been removed by the PO. I just don't know how well the hose is attached to the outlet in the head floor. I don't see moisture when I use the shower there either. It would just be nice to know. I installed a diaphragm electric pump last year and it works well. I just know the hose will need to be replaced at some point and you'd think that someone would have done it by now.
