Our Tips & Tricks

Repurposed Fuel Transfer Nozzle

Our fresh water tank holds 400 gallons (GRP) onboard. The water hose from the dock to our water tank takes a while to fill so it’s easy to get distracted and overfill (furthermore waste water). 

Unlike other boats, we don’t have a direct water feed from the dock to the boat. So we regularly fill after excessive use after doing laundry, long showers, running the dishwasher 2 – 3 daily and/or washing the vessel.

Best to our knowledge, there’s no automatic water valve shut off system, therefore introducing the fuel transfer nozzle (well cleaned and rinsed before use). Our water hose from the dock on one end and this fuel transfer nozzle on the other end. Now, when the tank is full, the water flow just automatically stops minimizing water waste.
