Replacing water heater in 14M Intl Convertible

Post by eitherorr » Mon Aug 06, 2018 8:39 pm

Good day all. I have recently found my water heater after owning the boat for 2 yrs. I have found water dripping off the plate it is mounted to and believe I will need to replace it. However, where it is located does not make it for an easy replacement. Has anyone, or does anyone know the best method to remove and replace it? Thank you for your help. --Ken Orr

fairly straightforward on the 10 meter, I replaced mine in during the diesel refit in 2005.

worst case for you might be to cut the old one out and replace it with a smaller unit...….

I have been on one 14 meter convertible - ANDIAMO in Stuart, FL - WHAT AN AMAZING VESSEL !!!

RMS and Ken...... hate to reply with no advice about the hot water tank except to suggest "Just do what seems to make the most sense to get to it, plan on taking twice as long as your planned and paying twice what you budgeted." But just wanted to say that I was aboard a 14 metre in Toronto that I believe was sold and went to Florida because it came with a pretty cool looking factory hardtop. Truly amazing hull. Quite a boat you've got on your hands, Ken.
