Those appear to be old depth and speed sensors. Nothing to do with the DWV system.I'm a new owner of a 1979 ericson e27, got it with no toilet, & bought & need to install it myself. So ...
1. Does my specific year & model came out the market with a built in holding waste tank? Does it also have built in overboard as an option?
2. If so, I noticed pipes how was it implemented running hose between the toilet bowl & those outlets pipes? (See image)
Right. Go with a "MSD" (marine sanitation device) model and plumb it for pump out and/or overboard discharge. You don't want to be schlepping 5 gallons of waste when you have to dump it out.Porta-pottie
It all depends on what type of usage for your boating needs. I would say just use a porta-pottie. 5 gallons of waste storage, if you want you can have it plumbed. Alot less money and headaches. Stick the $ into something else that can bring her back to her glory. Rob Hessenius
I'll get tbose pics as soon i get the chance. Yes, I saw that water tank, but I saw another but not sure what it is since I didn't meticulously went thorough it.Hi Robert,
1979 was I think the last year the E27 was manufactured. There is a good chance that it was built with a functioning head. Check under the v-birth for a holding tank and a fresh water tank.
Can you take some more photos of the head area and under the v-birth?
You never, ever want to plumb a marine head into the potable water system.Had a 23 ft North American in the late '80s for weekend sailing. Installed a West Marine head mounted on its own 2-3 gal(???) holding tank and flushed from the 10-12 gal (??) potable water system. The tank could be pumped out from either a deck fitting or overboard. Painless.
Current 28+ has the head pump directly into a 13 gal holding tank below the v berth. The tank can be emptied by deck fitting or pumped overboard. Only issues is that since the tank is always used it must be flushed a few times a year for very good odor control.
Thanks for sharing this, Gabriel. I was unaware of this model. And you are absolutely right: there would be no problem hooking this into one's existing FW system.
