It Is Done

Honestly, it was a job I was dreading. Turned out to only take about 45 minutes, and there were no toxic waste incidents to report. Replacing the entire unit may have been one of the smartest decisions I have ever made! Oh here's a tip.... These come in two sizes. Compact (which are apparently for children), and standard.... go standard, your butt can thank me later.

Four screws and a couple hose clamps and the whole panel came right out, MSD and all. Took the thing to the dock, unbolted the old MSD, and bolted the new one in it's place with the exact same bolt pattern. Thank you Jabsco for not changing it!

While I had the space open, I added a shower sump box to the boat. I don't know if she never had one, or if someone removed it, but under that drain you see was - nothing. not even an old hose. it went directly into the bilge. Now I can actually shower on board, which for a guy who is 6'4" tall, is still a challenge!
