Bought 12 meter, qx on overboard discharge

Post by lottanerv »

Stepped up from my 1980 F32 to a 1988 12 meter. Still learning the boat. Original invoice from Bob @Beacon shows OB discharge option but can’t find the thru hull where it discharges OB. Anybody know?

The hose goes from the holding tank to a splitter, where one goes to the starboard gunnel, and the other goes to a macerator under the starboard cockpit deck into a through hull on the starboard side underwater in line with the raw water wash down inlet (which is in the same place on the port side).

Thanks El Sea. The thru hull you are referring to is now connected to the AC water pump. Prior owner must have repurposed it. The OB discharge pump is where said it is but it is not connected to any thru hull. The outlet hose just lays in the bilge. (There is no switch to turn it on thank God) This begs the question then where should the correct thru hull be for the AC pump?

My AC thru hull is next to the generator thru hull amidships in the center bilge near the forward engine room wall.
