Getting Tanked!

“Minor” repairs to our onboard water tanks include cleaning and all new thru-hull fittings and hoses and the installation of an inline filter. The main accomplishment was a recoat of the lining using Liquatile 1172, a food grade 2-part, solvent free epoxy (http://www.wolverinecoatings.com/liquatile-1172/). As with most minor jobs on this older girl it turns into a time-intensive project. Accessing the tank fittings, for example, requires contortions, pain, swear words, scraped knuckles, etc. But in the end sweet tasting water and the peace of mind is worth it. Mariah 31 owners, please feel free to contact me with questions.
