Guys : Just make sure that the exhaust hose is NOT touching the protrusion of the toilet paper cabnet !!!!!!

DONE!  :clap

A little creepy feeding the hose through to the head side hole, man that sucker is so small.  If they'd made that hole the same size as the aft hole, it woulda been a LOT easier.  Since the hole isn't sealed, anything that spills in the port locker is goin' down anyway.

My son, bless him, spent most of the afternoon in the port locker, while I guided the hose through under the head and in the lazarette.  The hardest part was redoing the wire ties under the head counter to hold the hose up before it turned down into the muffler.  The new hose is much more supple than the old one, so makes bends much more easily.

The old hose didn't have any particular holes in it, just cracks all along its length.  I'm sure it was leaking big time for many years, based on the black soot all over everything.  Having Morgan on his back cleaned up the port locker pretty well!   8)

We have a bunch of lines in the lazarette, so I was able to avoid stepping on the cockpit scupper drains and the bilge pump hoses.

I'm glad I removed the aft cabin panel - I was able to guide the hose down and past the fuel tank, otherwise it would have been more difficult to figure out what was going on down there from up above, and you simply can't reach from the head door over to port to grab the hose from the head.

Thanks a lot for all the guidance.

Elapsed time, including removing and replacing all the stuff from the port locker:  started at 12:30, finished at a bit past 3:30. Doesn't include time I spent earlier removing the hose clamps at either endand taking off the aft cabin panel, say maybe and hour.

Good help is hard to find, all ya have to do is put them through college!  :thumb:

...and...  My old Bruce anchor and our sentinel (kellet).  The leaks from the old hose are evident on the inside of the hull.

This reminds me: isn't the fuel shutoff valve location ridiculous?

The picture of your son in the locker is priceless.  That's a good man!

Great job Stu. 
In regards to the fuel shut off vale, that is a terrible place for it, I have one on the inlet side of my racor filter so when I change the element I just shut it off there.

re: the fuel shutoff
I had a small access hatch lying around (it's a long story...).  So I decided to cut a hole in the fore-and-aft bulkhead in the aft cabin and install the hatch to give easy access to the valve.  Any screw-in deckplate could serve the same purpose and would be a good safety feature.

Many have added an inline shut off line just before the electric fuel pump to stop flow when working on the fuel filters.  Others just use vicegrips to close the line off.

I replumbed our electric fuel pump to after the primary Racor.  I do have a new shutoff vavle, to be installed, in front of the Racor.

Stu,
How many feet of hose did you put in for the replacement??  The yard charged me for 20 feet, not sure where the extra two or three feet went.
