Com-Pac Sailors Lounge / Re: CP23 vs. CP27 cockpits

Attached is a picture of my CP-23 "Cool Change" rafted with Charlie Deisher's "Windrunner", a CP-27. From our observations, the cockpits are about the same size. If I remember correctly, Charlie gave the cockpit cushions from "Windrunner" to someone with a Com-pac 23 and they said the cushions fit well.

If you scale both renderings and compare side by side it's pretty clear the cockpits, and foredeck, are at least very close to the same length.

I've never been on a 27, but I've always thought the 23 has a MASSIVE cockpit for its size, the entire boat feels rather large for its size

Is it my imagination or is the cockpit in the 23 just as big, maybe even bigger, than on the 27?   And for that matter, the foredeck on both appear to be about the same size.   Is 100% of the extra length in the cabin of the 27?
CP-27's / C-27 Shower Drain cont'd

Fabricated a gasket from a bicycle tube, doubled and glued together.

A PO had installed some type of one way valve in the through hull.  It was plugged up with wasp nest so I removed it.  If the system works will install a seacock on the fitting.

After two trial runs,  the bilge and locker are still dry.  I am going to anchor out tonight to give the system its first shower.

The total cost was about $200.  I did shop around used parts stores but could not find a satisfactory pump.  Most of the hard stuff had already been installed so it took me about two hours to hook everything together and test.

Smooth Sailing and warm showers.

regards charlie

Lastly there was a piece of plywood glassed in the bottom of the locker.  The pump was missing.   The drain lines were plugged off.  A strainer was left on the drain hose.  I removed the strainer and connected the two hoses that attached to the pump together with a plug.  (This in retrospect was a lucky move.  When I removed the plug the discharge hose was full of water that had had come through the through hull.)

Installed a new Wale Gulper 220, designed to handle shower debris.  Fortunately the wiring was still in place and worked, unfortunately I have used that circuit to power the auto pilot.  I doubt that I will ever take a shower while on auto pilot.  However I could see someone inadvertently turning the pump on and running the pump unnoticed particularly with the engine running.

Filled up the shower pan with antifreeze solution and pumped it dry.  You can see some residual left in the pan.  It was easy enough to sponge up.

Windrunner was a charter boat at one time.  I understand that to be approved as a charter the shower could not drain into the bilge.  I am not sure about charter regulations, but the boat at one time was set up to discharge the shower drain over the side.  To this end there is a through hull about a foot above the starboard  waterline in the aft part of the seat back storage space.

There was a switch in the head to control the discharge pump.

There was a through hull fitting in the corner of the head extending into the starboard settee locker.

How about Door County, Wisconsin.  Only 10hrs from St. Louis.  Perfect for sailing and vacationing.  I have a CP16.  Be happy to loan it to you for a day sail.  I keep it in the water all summer on a private island.  Don't worry about rental:  that's the advantage of an old boat and you can't hurt a Com-Pac.

A couple years ago I had a Compac 16 here in the St Louis area and found that life was too busy at the time to get much sailing time in, so I sold the boat. Now my wife has booked a week at a house on Chesapeake Bay (near Onacock, VA) and she wants to go sailing.  I am wondering if anyone with a compac (of any size) in that area would be interested in renting me their boat for a few days during the last full week of July?
