Hylas Discussion / Replacing the galley sink in a 2002 46'
« Last post by mi.dreaming on December 27, 2017, 07:49:02 PM »
Has anyone ever replaced (or had to remove) their galley sink? We have a double sink that is quickly becoming the bane of my existence as well as allowing my "sailor vocabulary" to be used and expanded upon.  It seems to need exploratory surgery just get the answer if the sink can be exchanged. So, I'm not sure how deep I need to delve into this before I've hit the point of calling a "contractor-that-I-couldn't-afford-in-the-first-place-which-is-why-I-tried-to-do-it-myself". (Official title.)

I know some of you have posted about removing the engine, and so you guys know how the sink is in, hopefully someone will have a picture or at least some insight to share before the engine compartment becomes the place where I live for the the next... few days-weeks?

Thanks, Michelle

Thanks you all for the responses, appreciate the collective wisdom of the group.  With this we can do a walk around with our single piece wooden hatch and determine best fit.  No space under our Nav as best I can determine, but in the aft head there's certainly room.  Happy holidays all....

Our plexi glass hatch is at the nav station along the transgetial all on forward wall under nav station
Hylas Discussion / Frig/freezer condensation
« Last post by Ripple on December 25, 2017, 09:06:36 PM »
Hope everyone is happily surviving their holiday festivities. I'm taking a break to ask if anyone else experiences the heartbreak of condensation dripping from their frig and freezer doors and staining the teak underneath. Spent a lot of time researching better gaskets, installed them, and experienced the same results. Looked a little closer at the design of the interface between the door and freezer compartment and determined that the interface appears to have a design flaw; there are no insulating properties on part of the flange that contacts the gasket when the door is closed. In this uninsulated area, ice forms on the flange and eventually melts. Does anybody else have this problem? Our next attempt to fix this includes rebuilding the interface between the door and box. If that doesn't work and I don't get any better ideas, the final step may be permanently sealing the doors shut, making it difficult to get to the ice cold beers in the  Frig.

Hylas Discussion / Re: Fuel tank hoses
« Last post by Ripple on December 25, 2017, 08:26:30 PM »
On our 2004 46-53, Burt's Dec 19 post describes our setup. We have three manifolds: pickup for the Yanmar, pickup for the generator, and a return for both. Each of our 4 fuel tanks are plumbed to each manifold, two pickups with tubes to near the bottom of the tank and a return with no tube. The fill hose and vent hose to each tank is way off to the side, near the hull, and probably very difficult to replace or even see for that matter. JR
Hylas Discussion / H 49 Water under the aft berth.
« Last post by mbenjamin on December 25, 2017, 12:37:47 PM »
I have discovered water under the aft berth that I believe is coming from the rudder post.  A few drips do accumulate over time.  I will need to address whether the amount of water is acceptable. However, my issue is that there does not appear to be any drain hole for the water to reach the bilge.  Thinking of making a drain hole so water doesn't rise under the batteries, the inverter and other electrical connections which are all in the same area.  Anyone had a similar issue?

We store ours behind the aft head.  Fits snugly and doesn't move.

Hi Brian,
we have an EchoTec,, 20 gallon per hour, Ac unit. I installed it three years ago and just love it! The high pressure pump is under that Vberth bed and everything else is in the  hanging locker in the forward cabin....membrane, panel, all filters etc. Very convenient and easy to get to!
