Gulfstar 44 plumbing

Thought I'd start here for some help. Like most projects on a boat it seemed like a simple plan until we actually got into it. My wife wanted to remove the two heads from our 1981 Gulfstar 44 and put in a single composting head. How hard could that be? Then I got the bright idea that we could remove all of the former hose lines and thru hulls then rehab the holding tank to make a spare 20 gallon fuel tank for the diesel heater. Most of the hoses came out without too much of a problem, but there are two runs of hoses that come into the holding tank from underneath and behind the sole and other joinerwork. The boatyard suggests cutting access holes, but without knowing where they really run we're cutting in the dark. Looks like the builder laid out the electrical conduits and plumbing then built the boat over it all. Does anyone have any suggestions or know someone with a GS44 who might know how these boats were put together?

Thanks,
J.M.

Re: Gulfstar 44 plumbing

Hi JM,

I'm about to do exactly what you are asking here!!! Obviously no one on here was of much help but would you mind sharing how you went about dealing with those two hoses?? I'm at a complete loss right now, I really don't want to start taring up the sole.

Thank you!!
-Mike
