do you plan to do it yourself?

Pretty simple, cold water line in, hot water line out, 120V electric connection. May or may not have engine coolant hoses (2; supply/return) to heat water when engine is running. plus a couple of mounting screws.

There is an 18" x 18" approx box with like a heat exchanger/water heater that is leaking. Can't figure out how to pull that out and replave with out taking things off engine so it will fit by.

Don't have my boat near me at the moment but can you pull the fresh water tank out to make room to get the water heater out?


Nice boat by the way

A picture of the setup would help.

You might have to remove riser and elbow from the engine to remove the heater.

How many screws are holding in the fresh water tank? I can see 2 but don't know what is on the back side if any? I assume ther must be more...

Oce again a picture would help asthere are many different configurations. My 2400 SCR has a thread rod on either side of the tank with a board acroos the top that the rods go thru. So I just need to remove the 2 nuts from the rods to pull my tank. Plus hoses.
