I am looking for some ideas to redo the sea chest. I am
pretty sure the unit I have is not factory since an additional water maker was added
by the previous owner. Also, my current unit is polypropylene pipe and I have
read about corrosion being an issue on other Amels. So, I have no idea how Amel
originally designed this.
Coming off the Vetus strainer, I have independent direct
connections to the generator and engine. The third goes to a one-way flow valve,
a shut-off valve and then to a pipe with outlets for air conditioning,
heads/anchor wash, water maker one, and water maker two. There are no
independent shut-off valves for each of these four outlets.
I am wondering if anyone has tackled this project and can
give me some pointers regarding design and placement.
I would like something that is easy to clean and has
individual valves for each outlet. Thoughts?
With best regards,
