Aft Shower Pan in a 92 46'cl

Postby StevenD » Wed Feb 20, 2019 10:07 am

Anyone ever take the aft shower pan up? I'm planning on re-plumbing my waste system with pvc pipe in place of the hoses. As posted in another thread, access to the top of the holding tank is less than, well, do-able. My tank is located between the stringers directly under the aft shower, sooo, before I tear into this one, is the shower pan just that, one pan held down with wood trim or is there more that awaits my naive little hands.
This is all happening because the stb fuel tank started leaking. That had me dis-assemble and remove the fuel filters and manifolds, move the generator, to gain access to the tank with a sawzall, which naturally made me separate the gen. side from the engine to have the windings re-coated, because the generator looked like a hunk of tar with all the oil covering it (the pre-lube system was a mess and will not be re-installed).
That went ok with only a few swears and minor back pains.
Then the (ugh) vacu-flush plumbing maze, with its MANY yards of hoses, and one actual 2ft. dia. loop before the vac pump (you can't make this stuff up) not to be confused with the vented loop and I figure with the tank out of the way pvc piping will be far superior and I may go to the princess head and no more vacu-flush.(comments/experience with?)
So, after reading of the corroded pick=up pipe in the holding tank, I think now is the time to tackle this stinky task as well.
Any thoughts comments or suggestions will be appreciated.

Yikes man,
I'm in an 85 motoyacht. I lifted the shower pan last year. It was just a shower pan with wood trim around it. It was bedded with silicon caulk and fastened down with a crapload of screws. Mine was leaking for who knows how long, it rotted its supports and started drooping, causing it to leak even more. Not a great design.

You might want to consider replacing the exhaust hose while you'r at it. A lot easier now.

Yup, Exhaust is on the list. Have to do the holding tank pump out pick up[attachment=0]resizedpu.jpg[/attachment][attachment=1]exhaustresize.jpg[/attachment] (pu) pun intended, as it's rotted. Not a great design either.
