Washdown System

Postby Tom R » Thu Jan 14, 2010 2:24 pm

Hi Chuck, We have decided to add a washdown system for the decks and anchor to our MC30. We basically boat in the great lakes and will also be exposed to salt water in the future. I do have a thur hull for the head and I would like to add a T and valve as an inlet. I do not want to add another hole in the hull and the location of the existing thru hull will work well if it conforms to accepted practices.
