Electric Balast

Published date: March 7, 2006
  • Boat Type: Boat Type

I have put this mod under 26X but infact I purchased an Odin 820 last year after much deliberation of whether to buy the Odin or 26X. Anyway I am very pleased with the boat which has many simularities with the Mac. I have embodied many of the mods on these pages. However one I had not seen here is the fitting of an electric drain valve to the rear ballast system. I purchased an RV electric waste valve from the US an now with the press of a button I can open and close the rear valve without having to get onto the transom. I will post photos if anyone is interested. Aye cluett-green@bigfoot.com

    I replaced the starboard water tank with a better one (flexible type) which is now located below the cooler chest. The filling pipe goes below the headroom through the closet in the headroom and up on deck. You see the filling fitting on the picture....
