Cheechako, I agree with you on this. I have been shopping
all over the place for replacement ideas for my 78 Hunter
27, and have yet to find a faucet for either the head
vanity or the galley
sink that I like. The factory units are currently there, and seem to be set up for pressurized water
from the dock
Now that I have discovered my water storage
tank was kindly treated with a dose of Pine-Sol by the "helpful" PO, once I get it cleared out (IF I can get it cleared out), I would like to figure out a way to put in a good distribution system, and the faucet upgrades are in the mix for that system because of the obvious need to determine water routing options (am I moving to a pumping option or going electric
, etc., and what faucets will work
for either/each option?). I am hoping to find another thread about that part, but the faucet selection I have still seems to be the Home Depot sort of options. Oh, well, it is an old boat, and not intended to be THE boat anyway...
