Can any one enlighten me as to where I might find the isolation cock for the starboard wing tank (fresh water)? The owner’s handbook marks it as being more or less where the battery box is, ie the starboard side of the engine cavity, but I can find no evidence of a valve there. Any help would be appreciated. Currently my two tanks link, when the lower keel tank is full the pressure causes the wing tank to fill, and when that is full, the overflow into the galley sink begins to run.
Thanks, Duncan

Hi Duncan

I’m not sure if this isn’t an installation ordered by a previous owner.

We only have the lower keel tank.

Unless Latorchee is the odd one out.

Thanks Richard,

It’s true that in the original brochure it is marked as an option.

Cheers

Hi Duncan,
In my search for a air vent return hose (exhaust leak post) looked for the stbd wing tank isolation valve.
Found the stem valve (see pic) under battery box at aft end between after battery box support and after transverse bulkhead.
Only used the wing tank when offshore cruising as inner liner affected by blisters and, after a while, the water had a ‘funny’ taste.I didn’t grow horns though so used the water as a last resort.
The boat is No. 117 fitted out for West Coast Canadian owner so if you don’t have a valve this may be a factor.
Good hunting-Roger.
