Good luck. One thing to monitor is the head seems to have a tendency to siphon water. Lots of info on the net on this issue. seems it could be a stuck backflow vavle or the absence of a siphon break. Just one little reoccuring issue. second is to make sure the keel is properly blocked when on the hard, helps prevent the notorious Catalina smile.

One other note on the head, if you don't get the lever pushed all the way down on the pump dry setting it will siphon water back into the bowl and over flow on the heel. I found this the hard way, thought it was down, but wasn't, should go parallel to the waters surface.

Make sure the lever on the right hand side is all the way down, pointing toward the hull. again should be parallel to the horizion. doesn't seem to siphon then. Instructions are slim on operations and I will assume other comments, but is seems like if you have the lever in the "up" position, pump in some "fresh" water, turn down and pump dry that you will clean the bowl and stop the siphon. Best.
