Why would I? Well, a saltwater pump for rinsing dishes and anchor chains could be a great addition. Using saltwater in the galley can save a lot of precious tank water. We’ll be in rivers a lot so that’s even better–a fresh water rinse!
The Merlon through hull is one inch thick so I drilled an inch and-one-quarter hole. Then I backed the hole on the inside with Tyvek tape. I painted the margin of the hole with epoxy. I then packed the hole with thickened epoxy and quickly taped over it with Tyvek tape. Turned out pretty nice I think.
