to see if there is roughed in plumbing
Another question - How is the headliner
attached? Before I go tugging on it - some of the headliner
is separating from its backing that I'll need to address, and I will need to access space above it to possibly route wiring
I'm miffed that Moody didn't use hinged panels
for the nav station - something else I'll want to address!
We should start an M54 forum.
No washing machine? Didn't know any M54's were built without one. The washer/dryer goes in the most forward section of the passage cabin
. The space is odd shaped and I haven't found anything which will fit except the originally installed Eudora/Eumenia one. If you get something else to fit, I want to hear about it. My Eudora still works after 18 years -- and I use it a lot -- it's built like a tank -- but I don't think I can get parts
for it anymore. The drain can be arranged either with a PEX pipe to the gray water
tank, or direct overboard
via an above the waterline through-hull. Supply is trivial; just run PEX piping from the water
manifold if there isn't piping already in place.
panel issue with limiting straps made from small cordage. So you remove the screws and prop up the bottom edge in the panel opening and you can work
behind the panel. I decided against hinges because there are cases where you want to remove the whole panel. I hate the screws directly into wood
but haven't had time to come up with a better solution. Naturally the screws wear out the holes with time so I've gradually increased the size of them. Soon I'll need some inserts or something.
The M54 headliner panels
are attached like car door panels with -- I don't know what they are called -- bumper clips or whatever. These are made of crap material which has lost
its pliability and has become brittle. So you gently pry them off like you would do a car door panel, but expect to break some bumper clips. If you find an upgrade which fits I'd like to hear about it.
