Re: Vacuum in Head

You can't remove the stanchion without removing the vent tube anyway. Your picture shows the tube going through the bulkhead between the salon and the head. Where it attaches to the stanchion is on the other side of that.

I'm guessin that MKII's have the molded toerail and the high-low stanchions.

Mine is a 1980. I googled around and found a pic of a 84's head:

You can see the vent line in the rear left corner running up from the counter into the cabinet - the stanchion is right above that. (In a MK1).

From your pic, it runs through the cabinet in the salon, through a hole in the bulkhead, and has got to be in the cabinet in the head. My need to look way up and feel for it to, or maybe there's a panel in the rear that can be removed.

All else fails, call Catalina. They keep drawings and are very helpful on the phone.

Re: Vacuum in Head

Mine's a mark 2, 1989. The hose doesn't go into the head, as you can see from the picture I posted earlier, it goes up through the salon cabinet and behind the head, apparently between the head and the hull. If I can add a thru hull to the hull inside that cabinet, it won't matter where that hose goes after I cut it out of that cabinet.

Re: Vacuum in Head

Maybe this is obvious to others but took me awhile to figure out. The handle on my diverter valves points to the closed position (hose) which is opposite to what I expected.
