Trusty’s surgery!

Yesterday we did some surgery on Trusty, something like a gastric bypass. Not finding a membrane for the pump or a new one we decided to bypass the tank and the pump instead. Good thing is that we lose the sell but bad thing is that if we don’t close the valve trough the hull we might get an unpleasant surprise when sitting on the toilet while sailing in choppy conditions. But hey one got to take chances here in life.

So far we have no problems or leaks caused by our amateur plumbing but we’ll see what happens after trying it out a bit.
