I am looking for a plumbing schematic for the fresh water system on a BEN OC 43 2-cabin version.

The issue I am having is with water pressure to the galley sink.  There is good pressure (hot and cold) to forward and aft heads and the cockpit shower, but galley sink is weak.

I am thinking the following:

- air in the line (proved this isn't the issue)

- line routing and distance

- clog in delta-facet or facet fittings, etc.

- distribution manifold

Thoughts and recommendations are welcome, but I want to start with a diagram if anyone has one?

I had a similar experience and after removing the faucet screen and removing a lot of calcium chips the low flow still remained.  I found the blockage was in the smaller stainless braided lines that go from the semi rigid plumbing up into the faucet. Once I removed the faucet and unscrewed the braided lines that feed it,  I used a small gauge stainless wire to remove the  buildup.  It is now a once a year or so project.  Hope this helps

Thank you, Peter.

I will definitely try your suggestion.  I had checked/cleaned the faucet screen (with no change), but I'd never considered the braided supply lines.

I'll try your suggestion and publish the results.

Peters reply is spot on!

We had same issue with our B43 water pressure in galley sink, resolution was exact same as Peters!

A/C thru hull caution!!!!!

Caution, in flushing and cleaning the A/C strainer this weekend, I was reattaching the hose to the nipple coming from the raw water thru hull.  In simply re tightening the hose clamp the nipple sheared off.  Then in trying to carefully unscrew the remnant threads that screw into the 90 elbow they completley crushed.  It looks to…See More

" The mast on a 29 is approximitly 36' add 3' freeboard and you should be able to clear a 40' bridge. Make it 42 to be safe"

"There is probably a spec sheet on the Cascade 29 bridge clearance, but it would only be an estimate, since it depends on where your specific boat sits on its "designed" waterline and assumes your mast is the standard height. Some boats are…"
