Flu Impacts Productivity

Posted on Fri 06 March 2009 in Projects, Systems - Composting Toilet, Systems - Electrical, Systems - Hull, Systems - Plumbing

Two weeks ago I took off work on Friday to work on a bunch of projects one of which included using epoxy and I wanted to take advantage of the warmer weather and have an extra day to get things done. That Friday went pretty well and I worked on cutting the hole in the cabin top and sealing the edges with epoxy so I can install the mushroom vent for the composting head (more on that to come) but about 11pm that night the Flu (or maybe food poisoning) hit me and I was down and out for about 4 days. Well this weekend I’m feeling much better and Dawn and I are ready to tackle the to do list. Here’s the goals:

  • Finish Installing the mushroom vent in the head
  • Wire up the DC power to the fans in the composting head
  • Change the Oil, Oil Filters and Fuel Filters, remove sediment and water (don’t think we have any water) from the RACOR catch bowl
  • Check the Port water tank for a leak. I think one of my fittings is leaking :-(
  • Check the Propane tank overboard vent – I’ve not expected this since the purchase. I want to make sure its not clogged or broken
  • Secure the Plumbing – All of the plumbing is working great but all the lengths of hose need to secured under the salon floor. Not hard, but time consuming since the work space is so confined

That list feels a little ambitious, but I think we can get it done. I have a bunch of pics from cutting the hole in the cabin top for the vent and I’ll take some more as I get everything installed and do a write up about the installation process.
