I know that non-skid has been discussed multiple times but my question is this; in preparation of painting the non-skid, do you sand away all the old factory molded non-skid then apply new paint/sand non-skid? Or can the molded original be cleaned and ďroughed upĒ and painted over. And has anyone ever used the rubberized stick on non-skid and if so would you recommend it? Thanks for your help

Thanks for the ideas. I was unsure if the macerator would push ďeverythingĒ out on that far of a run. Iíll need to drill another hole in the bulkhead but thatís not a biggie. Thanks again for the help.

As originally set up, the toilet ran directly to the tank. The tank has 2 outputs one, for the pump out which is still in operation (although,itís useless because thereís no pump out where Iím located). The second to the macerator and then to the thru hull next to the tank. That thu hull has been abandoned and glassed over.

Apparently, a new 1.5 in is now in the locker aft of the nav station. Itís a direct dump from the toilet. A violation of all kinds of rules even here in Mexico. And disgusting too.

Instead of re-installing the old thru hull thatís been abandoned, Iíd like to try and use the larger one in the locker.

Sorry to be unclear. Hopefully, that helps.

On the last photo the white hose come from the toilet to the tank. As you can see itís capped off. The black hose comes from the macerator. In the first set of pics the white hose comes directly from the head to the thru hull.

By fill hose I meant the tank fill from the toilet to the waste tank. This makes the tank unusable.

Iím trying to put the tank back into the equation.

Has anyone abandoned the waste tank under the port settee and installed a new tank in the head. Iím thinking above the toilet? Have to remove the small storage space there. Iím not sure it would be a reasonable solution.

Thanks again for the insight.

When I was in Scouts, away at camp in the wilds of Wisconsin 50 some years ago, one of the leaders was a former Navy man. He ďpromotedĒ one of the scouts to be captain of the head. The leader and the scoutís dad saw great humor in that. The scout was quite proud of his promotion, until he wasnít.

Fast forward to today and it seems Iíve been ďpromotedĒ too.

Seaclusion has all the original head bits except that a PO has glassed over discharge thru hull and disconnected the fill hose from the head and the discharge line from the tank/macerator. Vent line and pump out are still intact.

There is a 1.5 in line that goes from the head to a thru hull via a anti siphon loop in the locker just aft of the nab station. Direct discharge. Yuck.

Iíd like (need) to bring the boat into compliance. Any thoughts on this would be appreciated. By the way, if anyone can think of a way without needing a new thru hull that would be awesome!

Thanks for the advice. It really helps.

Main Message Board / Reef line size?
« on: November 30, 2021, 10:51:48 AM »
Iím sure this has been discussed but Iíve not found the answer so any help would be appreciated. My boat, Seaclusion, hull number 364, standard mast, has the original jiffy reef slab setup. The owners manual says the reef lines should be 3/8ths line. That seems heavier than necessary. I was wondering what the general consensus is. Thanks for your input.

Has anyone changed from the original mast to a roller furler? Suereal has the original mast from 1986/87. If anyone has any input Iíd appreciate it. Iím curious what others have done with whom and the cost, financially, physically and emotionally. Thanks.

Hull is # 364 as stated in the first post. I wasnít playing hooky, but the droning may have caused me to nod off briefly. Originally built in Ď86 and commissioned in Ď87 I am the 3rd owner.

Thanks again for your help, Iím sure this isnít the last youíll hear from me!
