We are installing all of the thru hulls.
Do to the hull core
, all of the holes for the underwater thru hulls are lined with a fiberglass sleeve with a fiberglass flange on the inside of the hull
. These are bedded in epoxy
and milled fiber and cabot-sil. They will be sanded off flush with the outside of the hull and the valves and bronze thru hull
fittings will be installed.
The main engine
intakes strainers have a 2 way valve on them, to allow them to be used as emergency
pumps encase of a large leak.
The raw water
for the engines come in the bottom of the valve, the emergency bilge
intake on the top. It has 2 90 degree elbows to turn it down towards the bottom, with a drop tube and a foot valve as a pickup on the bottom of it.
When they are in place I will take more pictures of them
