Washing Machine Closet handles

Helia 44 Owners,

Need some help finding these Washing Machine Closet handles.

They have a number on the back 5100-3-01 , but a Google search gets me no hits.

Want to make Plexi glass doors for all the showers and would like to use these handles.

Re: Heads

Helia 44 owners,

For those of you that want the water to stay in the shower stall.
You can just add an adjustable shower bar and nice shower curtain.

They add a bit of style also.

We did all 3 showers like this in just a few minutes.

I believe these are the same latches we have on our owner's version shower. Captain Jay may have the part manufacturer info you are seeking.

Re: Heads

Here is another low cost solution to the problem of water leaking under the door of the owners cabin shower. The shower door is 8mm thick and 23 inches long. The 5/16 or 8mm guard works perfectly and we just used a razor blade to cut the length.

Re: Heads

Has anyone opened up the sealed area under the starboard front locker in front of the shower area, is there useable storage under there?

My understanding is that compartment is intentionally sealed to provide a watertight flotation compartment. I believe that the watertight compartment is one of several requirements for certification by the CE (European Union's standards body) for 'all ocean' cruising and which is relied upon by insurance companies in setting coverages and rates. I think there are other threads on this topic.

The specific ISO language requires purchasing but the description follows:
ISO 12217-2:2015 specifies methods for evaluating the stability and buoyancy of intact (i.e. undamaged) boats. The flotation characteristics of boats susceptible to swamping are also encompassed.

The evaluation of stability and buoyancy properties using ISO 12217-2:2015 will enable the boat to be assigned to a design category (A, B, C or D) appropriate to its design and maximum load.

ISO 12217-2:2015 is principally applicable to boats propelled primarily by sail (even if fitted with an auxiliary engine) of 6 m up to and including 24 m hull length. However, it can also be applied to boats less than 6 m if they are habitable multihulls or may be applied if they do not attain the desired design category specified in ISO 12217‑3 and they are decked and have quick-draining recesses which comply with ISO 11812.

In relation to habitable multihulls, ISO 12217-2:2015 includes assessment of susceptibility to inversion, definition of viable means of escape and requirements for inverted flotation.

Shower Spray Heads

Helia 44 Owners,

Even though we carry 200 gallons of fresh water on board.
Our 2 daughters seem to think we own Niagara Falls.

We removed all 3 waterfall shower heads and installed 3 on/off sprayers just like the ones on the stern sugar scoop shower.

The Sprayers work much better and have more pressure.
These Sprayer also work better for getting the soap out of their long hair.
.
Our 11 gallons of Hot Water also last much longer.
