The 12000 Mermaid HVACK got even more work done to it. We cut the holes for the 6” insulated ducting. We used the template Debbie made and drew them out. The first one was into the starboard salon compartment. The second was from that compartment to the lower storage compartment by the galley sink. Not sure if all Islander Freeport’s have access to this but we have a 1978 and have access.
We had previously installed the March pump and drilled a hole through the rib for the ½ hose and ran the hose.
We also set up the strainer and had a through hull installed. It was time to connect the dots here and it takes a while. Debbie got all the hoses connected up to the bleeder valve by the Mermaid HVAC unit. Debbie did all the connecting and I did some plumbing of the 90 deg elbow and hose barb.
It takes the water in the drain pan that collects and sends it to the out through hull instead of it going into the bilge. It took a hose and strainer and then snaking some more hose to the device.
We then called it a day as we usually only work until about 1:30P then either take off for the pool at the hotel or go into town for provisions or just stay home and siesta!
