Where Is It? (On a '69 Coronado 25)

Hi all,

I have managed to scrounge some of the original plans for a Coronado 25 but I cannot seem to locate the potable water holding tank. Either it's been removed or I can't find it.

Anyone who has any knowledge of these boats, please point me in the right direction.

Thanks in advance!

Exclamation the bolt that holds the tiller head to the rudder shaft.

You may also see it under the access that was previously the ice box. The one I used to watch for another Sailor had it relocated there.

OBTW, look closely at the bolt that holds the tiller head to the rudder shaft. If that bolt becomes loose the rudder will fall out of the bottom of the boat.

I did a low visibility search pattern and went through 3 tanks of air looking for that rudder to no avail.

The water tank is indeed under the V berth. It is molded with the liner that forms the interior of the boat. Wesco and Columbia fitted in a bladder tank into the area. On some C25s people have sealed the fiberglass bottom with a plywood lid to form a tank without a bladder (that leaks). On mine I bought the 13 gallon triangular bladder and made it fit. I could carry about 10 gallons if I filled slowly and burped the tank.

Dang, I totally missed it. Thanks guys! And thanks for the warning about the tiller head bolt. Uh, if the rudder fell out, wouldn't that leave a hole?

The rudder shaft goes up through a tube in the stern. The rudder shaft is not watertight on the tube. The top of the tube is under the tiller head.

(agreeing with Frank)

Yes, it would leave a hole. It would not sink the boat (unless other damage were done). The problem is that the steering casualty would require the rudder be replaced to fix.... not easy or cheap.

The fact that the single bolt holds the rudder to the tiller head (not uncommon, but known failure point on your boat) makes it a high priory inspection point.

Ah, ok I see what you're saying.

Well, I'm keeping a list of all the scary things people are telling me to check so I'll add this. So far, I haven't found anything major yet.
