Halyards, Hand Bilge Pump, and Sewage Tank

Hello, Gents(and ladies)

I am new owner N30MKI. She is a nice boat and for the money that I have paid for her, it is even nicer.

Still there is an array of things that will need to be done to her.
1. I am looking to replace both halyards on her. What are the length and width of standard halyard for N30?

2. I can't find the hand bilge pump on the boat. Where is it?

3. Where is the sewage tank? When water washes from the sink into the drain where does it go?

I appreciate all your help on this, friends! I will soon post pictures.

Yuriy

What is an N30MKI?
Manual bilge pumps are mounted in the cockpit (locker), near the helm.

N30 MKI

Hello Yuriy,
I'm also curious to know what a N30MKI is. I googled it but came up with nothing
As far as sewage tank is concerned, are you talking about the Black Water Tank?
No offense, rather some friendly advice. Get to know your boat better. Follow the plumbing from start to finish. You might have to fix something in a hurry and knowing how it all fits together helps.
The waste water from the galley normally goes straight through a skin-fitting into the water.
Cheers,
Alan

Based upon the OP's earlier posts, the yacht is a Newport 30 "Mark I". What I don't understand is why he/she would not simply go through the the yacht him-/herself to answer his/her questions, eh?

If the yacht needs replacement halyards, attach messenger lines to the old ones, extract them from the mast, and take them to West Marine...

What makes you think there is one?

Quote:
3. (1) Where is the sewage tank?
Might have been a good idea to have figured this out before you bought the boat, eh? Follow the discharge line from the head to its terminus. On a Nweport 30 I wouldn't be surprised if it simply went to a thru-hull.

Take a look under the sink old sport...

This will depend on how your boat is laid out. Are the halyards at the mast or led aft. You should be fine with 7/16 or 3/8. Find out what the mast height is Known as the "I" double it and then add a few feet so that it will reach the bow and add some tail if it is led aft.



2. I can't find the hand bilge pump on the boat. Where is it?


We didn't have one on our boat. I don't know if they came as a stock item. You would think they did.


3. Where is the sewage tank? When water washes from the sink into the drain where does it go?


Sink water goes straight out thru a thru hull. The Mark I were built before the requirement to have a holding tank.


I appreciate all your help on this, friends! I will soon post pictures.

HyLyte and others, good point on getting to known your boat better. Roger. Thanks

The boat is indeed MKI that was produced 1968-1971 by Gary Mull.

The boat rigging has been swapped couple owners ago. It ended up having wirerope/line 1/2" halyard that is now following apart.

I really wanted to know what is diameter that is most appropriate for Newport30. Personally, I feel that 1/2" is overkill.

Once again, that you for the feedback thus far.

Sometime large line is chosen because it's easier on the hands.

All of the manufacturers provide excellent advice on selecting running rigging lines.
